FLTA Awards Judging Day impresses
17 January 2017
In December, I attended the FLTA Awards Judging Day, looking closely at a number of product, company and individual categories. I was greatly impressed by the depth of quality on show.
All finalists deserve great credit for their nominations and the effort spent on making their case. The debate the judges had on the nominees was stimulating, it’s great to hear the opinions of a range of intelligent, knowledgable people from a range of different perspectives in the forklift, and broader logistics world. We can’t wait until the Awards night itself on March 4 at the Telford International Centre.
As well as being an enjoyable experience, there is no doubt the Judging Panel has led to a fairer process than the online voting system, which was open to abuse, just think ‘Boaty McBoatface’.
I was very impressed with the probity of the process and all of the judges involved and this will certainly increase the gravitas the FLTA Awards already undoubtedly enjoys.
