13 Nov: IBJ Awards 2017, The Netherlands
The IBJ Awards is known as "the Oscars of the Bulk handling sector". Once a year achievements by individuals and organisations within bulk handling are saluted here and awards are given out to companies or individuals within 13 different categories. Each year about 500 professionals from all continents gather at the IBJ Awards for a chance to network with relevant potential business partners and for a chance to either win in a category or celebrate others who win.
Entries are judged by senior industry leaders. Working in separate panels to ensure complete Impartiality, judges are chosen to recognise what is truly outstanding and deserves recognition. The panel pays particular attention to increased efficiency, safety and environment protection.
Siwertell is proud to announce we are nominated in three of the award categories this year: Best Shiploading/unloading System, Customer Care Award, and Environment Protection Award.
