IFA hosted the presentation during its annual convention in San Antonio, TX.

“Attending IFA is exciting and an overall great experience for the entire franchise industry,” said Baranowski, Franchise Development Manager for Unishippers Global Logistics, LLC. ”To be recognized at the annual convention is a great honor, and I look forward to bringing back this accreditation and industry knowledge to Unishippers.”
