As part of 2019’s year of celebrations to mark the 75th anniversary of its foundation, the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA) has announced that HRH The Princess Royal will be the Guest of Honour at this year’s UKWA Annual Lunch and Awards
UKWA CEO, Peter Ward, commented: “2019 is a momentous year for UKWA and we are absolutely delighted that HRH The Princess Royal will be joining us for our special 75th Anniversary Lunch. The UKWA Annual Lunch and Awards is one of the most prestigious occasions in the logistics industry’s calendar and this year promises to be a particularly memorable day.”
HRH The Princess Royal is the founding Patron of Transaid – the charity that works to transform lives by delivering safe, available and sustainable transport solutions across sub-Saharan Africa – and, to mark its 75th anniversary, UKWA has pledged to raise £75,000 for Transaid during 2019.
Launched in 1944, today UKWA is the leading trade body dedicated to serving the needs of the UK’s logistics industry and has around 800 members who, between them, control nearly 100 million square feet of warehousing space from some 1300 locations across the UK.
The UKWA Annual Lunch and Awards takes place at The Dorchester on 27 June and over 450 logistics professionals are expected to attend.
