The UK and Ireland’s leading logistics exhibition, Multimodal 2018, teams up with the Freight Transport Association to champion supply chain leaders

London, UK, Tuesday, 30th January 2018 – Nominations for the third Freight Transport Association (FTA) Multimodal Awards, which this year will champion warehouse innovation, are open until Friday, 2nd February 2018.

The awards recognise excellence in air, road, rail, maritime, and freight forwarding services, as well as rewarding a Young Logistics Professional, and a Shipper of the Year.

“Multimodal is a celebration of excellence across our industry, as well as an opportunity to network and learn from the best,” said Robert Jervis, Logistics Portfolio Director, Clarion Events.

“The awards are an important platform to recognise that excellence, and following feedback from the industry, we are pleased to have a new Shipper category, which puts the spotlight on warehousing, where innovative companies are making a difference every day.”

Nominations for the services awards are voted for by the thousands of readers of the Multimodal newsletter, as well as FTA members, and exhibitors at Multimodal 2018.

The Young Logistics Professional and Shipper Categories are judged by a panel of industry leaders, which this year includes Ariaen Zimmerman, Executive Director, Cargo iQ, David Wells, Chief Executive, FTA, Peter MacSwiney, Chairman, Agency Sector Management (ASM Ltd.), Dave Howorth, Executive Director, SCALA Consulting Group, and Robert Jervis.

Over 800 guests are expected to attend the winner’s VIP dinner and ceremony, hosted by Rugby Union referee Nigel Owens, MBE, on Tuesday, 1st May 2018 at the VOX Conference Centre, Resorts World in Birmingham, on the first day of the Multimodal exhibition.

Multimodal has once again teamed up with the FTA, the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA) to put together a two-day programme of panel discussions and masterclasses.
