Freight Transport Association Supports Ladies in Logistics

Trade Group Joins with Everywoman Awards
Shipping News Feature

UK – It is time once again to put forward the names of women you feel should be honoured for their hard work and achievements in the supply chain with the sixth annual everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards, and this year that title is prefixed with FTA as the Freight Transport Association are title partners for 2013.

Nominations will close on the 11th February 2013 and will be judged in March before the actual ceremony which this year will be held on the 16th May 2013. The awards are there not only to celebrate individual success and achievements but to promote the roles of women in the industry and those companies who actively support gender equality.

The award categories cover Rising Star to Director, Driver to Warehouse operative, or perhaps you are an Industry Champion? From the seven categories there is sure to be at least one that fits. See which best suit you, and submit your entry or nominate a colleague you believe deserves recognition for their dedication and ability. The seven categories can be seen in detail HERE.

The original purpose of the everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards was to recognise the most inspirational women working in the industry. They have grown into a way to create change by showcasing role models that other women can aspire to be as well as communicate that transport & logistics is an industry that fulfils women’s career aspirations. These awards hold a special value in that they not only recognise the talents of those working in the industry but also the companies with the ability to choose the best person for the job so if you have an employee, colleague or even boss who deserves acknowledgement in any of the categories available why not nominate them HERE right away.
