Entries are now open for the Talent in Logistics Awards 2020, uniquely dedicated to recognising and rewarding the stand-out individuals, teams and organisations within our country’s vital logistics sector.
The awards, which are free to enter, highlight those who have been successful in attracting, developing and engaging talent within logistics, as well as driving the industry forward. This has proven to be particularly essential for the logistics sector during the coronavirus pandemic where the supply chain is under greater pressure than ever.
“The magic of our sector is in the people and that is truer now than ever, where they are working tirelessly to keep our shops, hospitals and fuel stations stocked,” says Ruth. “It has never been more important to recognise and celebrate the unsung heroes on the front line of the supply chain, such as drivers and warehouse operatives.”
“These are challenging times, but there are brilliant people and initiatives in logistics that are helping to keep the country moving, and are ensuring that our sector thrives,” says Ruth. “Our awards are uniquely focused on people, ensuring that they get the recognition that they deserve.”
Award entry forms are available to download online until Thursday 25th June when entries will close. A shortlist will be announced shortly thereafter and winners will be announced on Thursday 1st October 2020 at an event the Concorde Centre in Manchester.
