This event is a great platform for us to do just that and recognise those who demonstrate a significant contribution to the development of our profession. This is an exciting time for logistics and transport, it is full of opportunity and the leaders of our profession have a responsibility to continue to elevate the bar to allow our sectors to thrive.
“Congratulations to all of this year’s winners. The standard of entries gets higher every year and we hope that the awards you received tonight allow you to not only raise the profile of individuals and organisations, but also the profile of our great profession.”
