New FTA competition to find transport manager of the year 2020

Feb 02, 2020
On 5 February, entries will open for a brand-new event in the logistics industry, FTA’s Transport Manager of the Year competition (Freight Transport Association).

The event will provide an opportunity for transport managers to showcase their extensive knowledge and gain recognition from other industry professionals. The competition is open to all operators, not just FTA members.

Fifty finalists, selected by FTA’s Board from all entries received, will take part in a day of competition at the UK head office of event supporter DAF Trucks in Haddenham on 24 April, undertaking a series of role-relevant challenges in order to test the knowledge and skills they need to be a great transport manager.  

All participants will then be hosted at a ceremony and lunch on 6 May where the competition’s winners will be recognised, including the overall FTA Transport Manager of the Year. FTA’s Young Transport Manager of the Year will also be recognised, as the competition looks to identify the rising stars within the logistics sector. 

As well as gaining recognition from their peers and other industry professionals, there will be some excellent prizes on offer for the award winners. Carlie Nowell, Head of Events for FTA said, “As the business organisation representing the logistics industry, FTA is excited to be staging this competition for the first time – as it will be the only event of its kind that tests and celebrates the important work carried out by transport managers.  Transport managers play a vital role in logistics operations, keeping vehicles moving and ensuring compliance is maintained, and this competition will provide the very best platform to showcase their skills and demonstrate how their roles are key in keeping Britain trading.” 

“The Young Transport Manager of the Year award will also recognise the next generation of emerging talent which will be vital to the continued success of our industry. Young people are the future of our sector, and it is important to recognise the talent of those who will be at the heart of logistics operations nationwide for many years to come.” 

Further information about the competition will be published soon on the FTA website.
