FTA holds its first ever Logistics Awards event

Mar 05, 2018
Around 300 FTA (Freight Transport Association) members and guests gathered at London’s InterContinental Hotel on 13 December to celebrate the Association’s first ever FTA Logistics Awards.

The glittering black-tie event was hosted by impersonator Alistair McGowan and FTA Chief Executive David Wells, who said the awards showcased the very best of British industrial delivery and innovation.

“FTA is the only organisation to represent all of the logistics industry, so we are ideally placed to recognise the achievements of our sector’s leaders,” said David. “The inaugural FTA Logistics Awards have proved a great success, celebrating outstanding performance in multimodal supply and logistics from businesses both big and small. It’s wonderful to see multinationals such as thyssenkrupp AG being recognised alongside household names like TomTom Telematics and local government heroes, such as the London Borough of Croydon’s pollution team.”

Keynote speaker Transport Minister, Jesse Norman MP, who was unable to attend in person due to parliamentary commitments, said in a recorded video that at a time when the economy is under pressure, the performance of the logistics industry is something to be celebrated. Mr Norman praised the country’s leading supply chain organisations and the contribution the logistics sector makes to the UK economy.

Among the organisations recognised in the awards, which were supported by Multimodal Ltd, were representatives of all modes of freight transport, including air, sea and road transport, as well as the industry’s buyers and support sectors.

The FTA Logistics Awards, which will now become an annual event, celebrate supply chain leadership and excellence, and recognise leaders who have made a significant contribution to the industry, either as individuals or as businesses.
