IBJ Awards finalists announced

(Posted on 01/09/17)

IBJ is pleased to announce which enterprising companies have made it to the bulk cargo handling and shipping industry's most exclusive shortlist – the IBJ Awards finalists.

There have been more entrants than ever in 2017, making this one of the most difficult years for our independent panel of judges; many submissions have not even made it to the finals.

Winners will be announced at a spectacular gala dinner on 13th November at this year’s stunning venue, the Beurs Van Berlage, Amsterdam.
