Excess Baggage Company, one of the UK’s leading providers of international shipping services, has been named by TNT Magazine readers as their top shipping provider at the publication’s prestigious Golden Backpack award ceremony in London.
The company beat competition from rival firms and fellow finalists Anglo Pacific, Pickfords, PSS International Removals and 1st Contact to pick up the favourite shipping provider award, which was presented – along with a total of 31 other prizes – as part of a glitzy ceremony at the Shaka Zulu bar in Camden at the end of October.
The Golden Backpack awards, which are voted for by TNT Magazine readers via live and online campaigns, recognise the cream of the crop in providing a range of services for the adventure, backpacking and youth travel market.
“After being nominated last year and enduring the disappointment of not winning, the team here are all delighted to have gone one step further this time around,” said David Elliott at Excess Baggage Company. “The fact that these awards are voted by TNT readers really means a lot to us, and we’re honoured to have been named as their favourite shipping provider. Here’s hoping we can hang on to the title next time around!”
