Advanced Forwarding Win Yorkshire Fastest 50 Media

Bradford-based Advanced Forwarding Limited performed the impressive feat of retaining its title of Fastest Growing Medium-Sized Business of the Year after winning the same award in 2015.

Part of the Advanced Supply Chain group, Advanced Forwarding provides a range of logistics and international freight forwarding services.

The Fastest 50 is an initiative run by Ward Hadaway which recognises outstanding business achievement by companies across the North of England.

It highlights and celebrates the achievements of fast-growing, profitable companies in the North East, Yorkshire and the North West by compiling and publishing annual lists of the 50 fastest growing privately-owned businesses in each of those three regions.

Individual awards are made to small, medium-sized and large companies to ensure that as many levels of business as possible are recognised and rewarded.

Nick Kay, Director at Advanced Supply Chain, said: “We are so pleased for all of the team at the business who have put in so much hard work and skill – this award is really for them.

“We have had a good past few years but we want to continue to push on – we can do more and we want to do a lot more with Yorkshire businesses. We want them to connect with us.”

Jamie Martin, Managing Partner at law firm Ward Hadaway, organisers of the Yorkshire Fastest 50 Awards, said:

"It is a tremendous achievement for Advanced Forwarding not only to be named the fastest growing medium-sized business in Yorkshire, but also to have won this award for two years running."

"It is a testament to the skill, determination and dedication of everyone at the company that they have achieved such a notable feat."

"Winning such an award is difficult enough in itself when bearing in mind the competition for the title, but retaining the award is a remarkable feat."

"We wish Advanced Forwarding the very best for the future and hope that they continue to succeed and grow the business further."
