David Wells, Chief Executive of FTA, the only business organisation representing all of the logistics industry, commented: “These finalists represent the ‘best of the best’ of our sector; the businesses and individuals determined to keep Britain trading, both at home and overseas. They have been selected for their outstanding commitment, knowledge and expertise, and represent a wide range of UK companies across transport modes and business sectors. With a record number of entrants this year, each shortlisted business had to fight off very tough competition to secure their place in the final line up, and those who scoop the top prizes will be truly at the top of their business games.   They should be justly proud of the contribution they are making to both the logistics sector and wider UK economy. 

The Logistics Awards truly is the blue riband event in the logistics industry’s calendar; a unique chance to celebrate the achievements of one of the UK’s most vital industries, all while enjoying world-class entertainment – this year, from comedian Ed Byrne – as well as a glittering gala dinner.”
