Adam Smith, Customer Services, International Freight Solutions (IFS)Adam began working in transportation through an apprenticeship scheme upon leaving school and has racked up 15 years knowledge and experience in the industry, working in many different departments at Courier Logistics. He was grateful to receive two nominations whilst working there, attending both the junior business awards at Ponds Forge, Sheffield and the young achiever’s awards at Magna, Rotherham, which were in praise of his hard-work and dedication, going that extra mile within the workplace.

After working alongside Paul Johnson for a couple of years in the International department at Courier Logistics, Adam joined the new start-up business of International Freight Solutions in June 2016. Since working at IFS he has enjoyed learning about new country regulations and customs procedures. He especially enjoys the challenge of getting an enquiry about a far flung country he has never heard of before!

Adam’s other interests lie in a passion for photography and Italy. Where possible, he likes to submit his landscape photography to competitions and has been able to sell a couple to printing publishers for their magazine articles. His love of travel lead to his discovering some of the rural towns and cities of Italy, where he has had the opportunity to study Italian at the Istituto Italiano in Florence. Travelling to Italy has become an annual voyage for him, where he maps out new places to visit. He divides his holiday time between volunteering in Tuscany and Umbria, helping with local people and projects and was able to contribute towards the relief efforts for the recent Amatrice earthquake appeal.
