Young professionals and innovators championed at Multimodal Awards
(Posted on 31/01/19)
Nominations and entries for the 2019 FTA Multimodal Awards are open, and snooker legend Steve Davis, OBE, has been announced as the host of the gala event.
The FTA Multimodal Awards, hosted in Birmingham, UK, recognise best in class across all modes of transport and logistics services, including categories for Shipper of the Year and Young Logistics Professional, as well as the Multimodal Personality of the Year Award.
The winners will be announced on 18th June 2019 at an awards ceremony on the first day of the Multimodal show, and nominations can be made online until 29th March 2019.
“The FTA Multimodal Awards night is an important event at Multimodal and provides a platform to recognise outstanding achievements in the industry, while championing young professionals, and highlighting innovation and good practice,” said Robert Jervis, Logistics Portfolio Director at Clarion Events.
“At Multimodal, we celebrate excellence in logistics and offer opportunities to network and learn from leading figures in the industry.”
The Young Logistics Professional and Shipper categories are judged by a panel of industry leaders, which this year includes; Stavros Evangelakakis, Head of Global Healthcare, Cargolux, and Chairman of the Cool Chain Association; Daniel MacGregor, Co-founder at Nexiot; Peter Ward, Chief Executive Officer of the UK Warehousing Association; James Hookham, Deputy Chief Chairman, Freight Transport Association; Adele-Louise Carter, Liverpool - Humber Optimisation of Freight Transport Project Manager, P&O Ferries; and Jervis.
“Logistics is a dynamic and exciting industry and yet we often struggle to attract young people to join us,” said Evangelakakis.
“The FTA Multimodal Awards represent a fantastic opportunity to showcase young talent and I am looking forward to being part of a judging panel, which will champion best in class.”
Over 650 guests are expected to attend the winner’s VIP dinner and ceremony at the VOX Conference Centre, Resorts World at the NEC Birmingham, on the first day of the Multimodal 2019 exhibition.
