Entries are now open for this year’s Northamptonshire Logistics Awards – a celebration of the county’s leading businesses, inspirers, apprentices and drivers.
Businesses and sponsors gathered at a recent launch event where 12 award categories were unveiled, all designed to reflect talent, innovation and opportunities within the ever-changing local logistics industry.
The headline sponsor is once again MHA MacIntyre Hudson. Adam Young, Partner at the firm said: “Logistics is such an integral part of this county. The sector and county harbours some truly exceptional talent which isn’t always given the recognition it deserves so if you haven’t entered yet, then please nominate your firm and its staff without delay.”
One of last year’s sponsors, also an award winner, was Wellingborough-based PALLITE – crowned the 2017 Innovation winner for its use of 80% recycled paper and child friendly glue in its pallets and collapsible pallets.
Managing Director, Patrick Mulhall has urged businesses across the county to get involved: “Winning an award last year was a huge deal. Everyone works so hard and is passionate and believes in what they are doing, so to get external recognition is a real boost for the whole company.”
The Northamptonshire Logistics Awards is organised by the Northamptonshire Logistics Forum - a forum facilitated by the University of Northampton and Northamptonshire Growth Hub and made up of representatives from logistics companies county-wide.
Tony Bellott, Chair of the forum, said: “An incredible one in seven people are employed in logistics in this county, so this is our opportunity to celebrate successes and triumphs. Nominating yourself, your company or a colleague is easy to do, so act today and be a part of one of the most important events in the county’s logistics calendar.”
The deadline for entries will be 12noon Friday, 9th March 2018. The awards are free to enter and the ceremony will take place on Friday, 20th April at the Northamptonshire County Cricket Ground.
