Women - You Have Little Time to Prove Your Logistics Credentials

Shipping News Feature

UK – With the 2015 FTA everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards nominations now closing at midnight (GMT) on Monday 9th February, those who consider themselves (or a female colleague) worthy of recognition need to get their skates on and complete the online form which will get the ball rolling. Supported by lead sponsor the Freight Transport Association (FTA) winning one of these gives the victor real kudos within the industry.

There is a category to suit every facet of the freight and logistics business (one even allows men to enter) with seven different options for those characters who lead by example and habitually overachieve. Finalists will gather at the stunning Hilton Park Lane, London, where everywoman will reveal the innovators and role models of the industry. You can book your ticket now to celebrate and network with like-minded people on Wednesday 3rd June 2015.

This year’s categories are as follows:

Industry Champion Award – awarded to an individual, male or female, who is an active champion for the industry, playing a vital role in attracting and retaining women in transport and logistics.

Rising Star of the Year Award – awarded to a woman aged under 30 who is excelling in her career.

Driver of the Year Award – awarded to a woman who is excelling in her role as a driver including HGV, van, motorcycle or passenger transport.

The Warehousing Award – awarded to a woman who is excelling in her role within a warehousing environment.

Innovation & Sustainability Award – awarded to a woman who is implementing an innovative operational solution (technologies and processes) that is changing the industry in a positive way.

Team Leader of the Year Award – awarded to a woman who is leading a team to excel in a way that contributes greatly to the company's success.

Leader of the Year Award – awarded to a woman operating in a senior role, contributing to the strategic direction of the business.

It costs nothing to enter and see if you or someone you admire has the right stuff to make the finals.
