Cabs Smart, which is based in Falcon Street, Ipswich, was awarded a silver trophy for ‘best private hire company’ in the one-80 cars category at the QSI awards in London.

In a glittering champagne ceremony held at the Copthorne Effingham Hotel in London, Ian Fountain accepted the award on behalf of the company’s owners Binumon Thankachan and Shirley Spicer.

Mr Fountain said: “It is great to have received this award on behalf of everyone that works here at Cabs Smart.

“We try very hard to get things right and to give a good service to the people of Ipswich, Woodbridge and Felixstowe and to receive this award from QSI is an honour.”

The event recognises the efforts of those in the professional driver industries nationwide across 11 different award categories.
