The Talent in Logistics Conference has been confirmed as the host for the ‘Lift Truck Instructor of the Year 2017’ live competition.  The contest, which celebrates excellence in lift truck training and instruction, will take place alongside the ‘International Forklift Operator of the Year’, a range of free seminars and a glamorous Awards dinner in Telford, on 22nd June.

Over 50 qualified forklift instructors have entered the “Lift Truck Instructor of the Year 2017”, which will reward skilled, hard-working instructors from across the logistics industry.  Following completion of an online test, entrants are now eagerly waiting to find out whether they will be among the top 10 instructors invited to compete at the live finals at the Talent in Logistics Conference.  Visitors to the free event will be able to watch all the action on the day. 

The winner will be announced at the annual Talent in Logistics Awards, as one of 18 awards that celebrate the unique skills and achievements of people across the transport and logistics sector.  The prestigious awards will be judged by a panel of industry experts, including event media partners SHD Logistics, Transport Operator, Health and Safety at Work and Training Journal.  The judging panel will also include representatives from the CILT (Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport), RHA (Road Haulage Association), FLTA (Fork Lift Truck Association) and charity Transaid.
