Reminiscing: Charlotte recalls how she nearly won top gong

It seems only yesterday Charlotte Firth was nominated amongst five other candidates for the award of ‘Young Freighter of the Year.’

In 2014, Tudors own, rightfully received recognition for her continuous dedication to the logistics company and was invited down to London for the awards ceremony.

Reflecting back at the momentous achievement, Charlotte told Tudor Freight about the process of how it all happened.

"Tudor decided to put me forward for the award. I had to write an essay on "How could BIFA engage more effectively with the younger employees of its Member companies". I also had to send a CV along with a personal statement. From this, I was selected for an interview at BIFA, London.

"I flew from Leeds to London for the interview. A few days later, I found out I was selected as 1 of 4 finalists to attend the award ceremony. It took place at The Brewery, London, it was so flattering and I felt honoured to have represented Tudor, a place which has been close to my heart since joining."

It wasn't the fairy-tale ending though, as she missed out on top prize. However, despite not picking up the award, Charlotte was still delighted to have gained acknowledgement for her craft. 

She said: "It would have been the cherry on the top to have won but finishing second I am still proud of the outcome. It's always great to know that you are appreciated for the hard work put in. Whenever I work, I try my utmost best. More importantly, Tudor received recognition which was fantastic.

"BIFA completed articles for their magazine regarding myself and Tudor. Many companies contacted us to congratulate us getting to the final stages," she concluded.
