The date for nominations for the FTA Awards has been extended  by a week to 12.00 on Monday 16th October.

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has launched the FTA Logistics Awards to celebrate supply chain leadership and excellence, and recognise leaders who have made a significant contribution to the industry.

FTA’s panel of independent judges will choose innovators in seven categories, including Freight Carrier of the Year, Retail Shipper of the Year, Manufacturing Shipper of the Year, Logistics Partner of the Year, Logistics Innovator of the Year, Logistics Champion of the Year for Essential Services, and Logistics Champion of the Year for Public Services.

The FTA will also reveal the initial leaders who have demonstrated long-term commitment and impact in the logistics industry to join its Hall of Fame.

“The FTA Awards will recognise excellence and leadership amongst the companies that drive the wheels of commerce and truly keep Britain trading,” said David Wells, FTA Chief Executive.

“We will be showcasing the best that the logistics and supply chain industry has to offer and rewarding companies and individuals who have gone the extra mile to innovate.”

Nominations are still open online, and can be entered by visiting and submitting a 600-word entry by a deadline of Monday, 16th October 2017 at 12.00.

Judging will take place during October and the winners will be announced at an event at the InterContinental London Park Lane, on Wednesday, 13th December 2017.
