2018 FTA Everywoman in Transport & Logistics awards open for entries

FTA Everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards is open for awards

The annual FTA Everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards programme - launched to celebrate exceptional women reshaping the industry - is now open for nominations.

With new categories introduced for 2018, this year’s awards will also recognise the achievements of men advancing the progress of women working in transport and logistics.

David Wells, chief executive of the FTA, said: “Logistics is one of the UK’s biggest employers with more than 2.54 million people working across the industry, yet only a small proportion of that number are women.

"FTA is delighted to once again sponsor the Everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards to recognise the women really driving change and acting as role models in a wide range of roles, and to showcase the opportunities that exist for the next generation to join this vibrant area of a sector, which underpins every aspect of modern life.”

Everywoman aims to inspire the next generation of female talent to work in the industry, and past finalists and winners of the awards have remained Everywoman ambassadors, reshaping the traditional perception of the transport and logistics industry as one that is male-dominated.

Entries for 2018 are open until February 12, 2018 and the awards will recognise two winners per category; one successful industry 'leader' and one individual at any stage in their career who has truly gone 'above and beyond' for their organisation.

In addition, the industry champion award will recognise a woman, or man, who is championing the progress of women working in transport and logistics.

A new category has also been added - male agent of change - recognising a man with an active commitment to advancing the progress of women working in transport and logistics.

The 2018 award categories are as follows:

  • The freight award – Entrants for this Award should demonstrate how they are innovating in the sector.
  • The passenger award – Entrants for this Award should demonstrate how they are improving the customer experience.
  • The infrastructure award – Entrants for this Award should demonstrate how they are improving road or rail infrastructure.
  • The supply chain award – Entrants for this Award should demonstrate how they are improving processes within supply chain.
  • The warehousing award - Entrants for this Award should demonstrate how they are innovating and improving warehouse operations.
  • Industry champion award – Entrants for this Award should demonstrate the impact that they have had on attracting and retaining women in the industry. Awarded to one individual only, male or female.
  • Male agent of change award (new for 2018) – Awarded to a man for his active commitment to advancing the progress of women working in transport and logistics

The winners will be unveiled at an awards ceremony on Thursday, June 14, 2018, at Marriott Grosvenor Square, London.
