500 of the UK’s leading professionals in logistics, transport and operations gathered at the Lancaster London Hotel last night for The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport’s Annual Awards Dinner.
CILT’s Annual Awards are designed to recognise achievement and to encourage the highest standards and a professional approach to the practice of logistics, transport and operations.
Hailed as one of the best networking events of the year, this year’s Awards were attended by finalists, sponsors, members and their guests and the Institute received a record number of entries for 2016.
The event was chaired by CILT President Will Whitehorn, and hosted by TV presenter Naga Munchetty.
There were a total of 16 categories presented on the night and CILT’s President Will Whitehorn presented 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.’
CILT’s premier award for outstanding achievement, the Sir Robert Lawrence Award, was presented by John Boulter, Managing Director, DHL Supply Chain to Professor Alan Braithwaite, Chairman, LCP Consulting.
