Five hundred of the UK’s leading professionals in logistics, transport and operations gathered at the Lancaster London Hotel on Thursday 27th October for The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport’s Annual Awards Dinner.
CILT’s Annual Awards - which attracted a record number of entries for 2016 - are designed to recognise achievement and to encourage the highest standards and a professional approach to the practice of logistics, transport and operations.
The event was chaired by CILT President Will Whitehorn, and hosted by TV presenter Naga Munchetty. There were a total of 16 categories, with Whitehorn presenting the awards to each winner.
Kevin Richardson, Chief Executive, CILT, said: "Our Awards recognise those individuals and businesses who demonstrate a significant contribution to the development of our profession and sector. We received an overwhelming amount of quality entries this year and our judging panel had the difficult task of choosing this year’s winners. Congratulations to all of our winners and finalists for 2016. It is great to see and celebrate so many innovative and pioneering projects in our profession."
