FTA Multimodal Awards nominations open as John Sergeant named host


Nominations for the FTA Multimodal 2016 awards are now open, featuring five new categories to reward best in class across all modes.                    

Innovation, training, and environmental best practice will also be recognised, with the winners announced at a gala dinner on May 10th 2016, presented by renowned broadcaster and journalist John Sergeant at the Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham.                     

A new dedicated awards portal hosted on the Multimodal web site, at, facilitates on-line nominations for all categories.                     

“Multimodal is now in its ninth year and we pride ourselves on providing a platform for the industry to network and grow business,” said Robert Jervis, Multimodal Director.      

“The awards are a reflection of our commitment to showcasing the best that our industry has to offer and we are delighted to be growing the categories.                     

“We are excited to be moving to the Vox venue to ensure the evening is an even bigger success than last year.”                    

Multimodal, the UK and Ireland’s leading logistics show at the Birmingham NEC from 10th to 12th May next year, has teamed up with the Freight Transport Association (FTA) for a series of seminars as well as the awards.                     

Nominations are being sought for air cargo, road freight, sea freight, and rail freight operator of the year, as well as freight forwarder of the year.                    

Companies can nominate themselves or their supplier, and a shortlist of nominees will go forward to the voting stage of the competition in January.

The Young Logistics Professional of the Year can also be nominated on-line.                   

The FTA’s Award for Contribution to Environmental Sustainability, recognising a team’s work towards reducing carbon footprint, will be revealed at the dinner along with the Multimodal Personality of the Year and the Exhibitor of the Year.                     

Multimodal 2015 was the biggest in the show’s history with over 8,500 supply chain decision makers visiting over 325 logistics exhibitors.
