Another successful year for the logistics sector
The logistics industry has been congratulated for keeping Britain trading in spite of difficult political and economic conditions.

Addressing guests at the FTA's Logistics Awards 2019 at the Park Plaza hotel in Westminster, Baroness Vere of Norbiton, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Department for Transport applauded the logistics industry on its fortitude to protect the supply chain, despite uncertain trading conditions.

The FTA's Logistics Awards is now in its third year, celebrating companies and individuals who have contributed to the logistics and supply industry, in an invaluable way. Brigade, CEVA Logistics, Siemens, Port of Dover, FTA Recovery and Santander are key sponsors of the event.

FTA’s Director of Marketing and Communications, Kevin Green, commented on the success of the evening:
“FTA’s Logistics Awards have always celebrated success, innovation and dedication, and this year was no exception. A highly anticipated event that surpassed even the greatest of expectations, this year’s ceremony certainly lived up to its reputation as the logistics occasion of the year. A glittering ceremony, three course gourmet dinner, and performance by world-renowned comedian Ed Byrne ensured attendees were in high spirits throughout the evening.

With every aspect of the logistics sector facing change, such as the UK’s eventual departure from the EU and fast advancing technologies, the award ceremony is designed to celebrate the achievements of those committed to keeping Britain trading as best as possible. All the winners and each of the finalist’s efforts were acknowledged and applauded.

Over 400 members of the logistics industry attended the awards, including large retailers, distributors and industry operators, to revel in a record number of entrants this year - 15 companies and individuals were celebrating after achieving awards.
