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.

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