The winners in the 2012 MAN everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards have been announced at a glittering ceremony held at The Savoy Hotel in London.

The women leading the way in this diverse and exciting sector were celebrated by their peers and other leading luminaries from the business, logistics and transport industries.

These pioneering awards - supported by industry leaders including MAN Truck & Bus UK Ltd, the Freight Transport Association, the Road Haulage Association and Media Partner Motor Transport - are now in their fifth year and have successfully helped to raise the profile of the women who are excelling in this non-traditional sector.
