One week to enter the FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards!

Currently in its eleventh year, the awards programme will shine a light on the vital role women play in the future of transport and logistics and the wide range of new opportunities available in the sector.

The awards will recognise two winners per category; one successful industry “Leader” and one individual at any stage in their career who has truly gone “Above and Beyond” for their organisation. All nominees should demonstrate how they are innovating and excelling in their roles and are welcomed from all sectors, from aviation and shipping to road and rail infrastructure.

In addition, the Industry Champion Award will recognise a woman, or man, who is championing the progress of women working in transport and logistics. A brand new category has also been added – Male Agent of Change – recognising a man with an active commitment to advancing the progress of women working in transport and logistics.

Maxine Benson MBE, Co-Founder of everywoman, comments, “Every year we look forward to uncovering the exceptional women whose achievements will truly inspire those aspiring to work in transport and logistics and importantly motivate those who have never considered the industry, to take a fresh look at it. The variety of industries represented by past finalists and winners shows just how many interesting and fulfilling opportunities are available, completely reshaping the perceptions many have about the industry.”

 

David Wells, chief executive of the FTA adds: “Logistics is one of the UK’s biggest employers with more than 2.54 million people working across the industry, yet only a small proportion of that number are women. FTA is delighted to once again sponsor the everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards to recognise the women really driving change and acting as role models in a wide range of roles, and to showcase the opportunities that exist for the next generation to join this vibrant area of a sector, which underpins every aspect of modern life.”
