Taking place on 22nd June 2017 in Telford, West Midlands, the Talent in Logistics Awards will reward individuals, who are often overlooked by other accolades in the industry, despite being key to the current and future success of logistics in UK and Ireland.

With 2.2 million people in the UK working in transport, warehousing and logistics, and thousands more needed to support the growth of the sector, providing professional development and staff recognition has never been more important.

They are the only accolades completely dedicated to the people that work hard to make the logistics, transport and warehousing sectors a success.

It is free to enter the awards online and winning will enable organisations to visibly demonstrate their commitment to quality training to existing and potential employees, as well as their industry peers.
