Deadline approaching for FTA Everywoman transport awards

There is less than two weeks to enter the FTA Everywoman transport and logistics awards.

The programme celebrates women who really stand out – whether they are warehouse managers, train, bus or lorry drivers, senior directors, or school-leavers just setting out on their path to career success.

The UK logistics industry is worth £74.45billion to the UK economy, and employs around 2.2 million people in over 196,000 companies.

This means around 1 in 12 working people in the UK are employed in logistics. With investment in the UK’s railway and airport infrastructure predicted to almost double over the decade to 2025, this is an industry offering broad and diverse employment opportunities.

These awards showcase the many roles women are succeeding in whether working hands-on in freight, air, rail or road, or office-based roles that include customer service, transport management, IT, marketing or planning.

Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of Everywoman, said: “Increasingly, the industry is going to need more people working in it and cannot afford to miss out on attracting bright, talented women. These awards are all about shining the spotlight on the women who are already succeeding in the industry. They are the role models who can change the public image of the industry and in doing so ensure more smart, ambitious women bring their talent to it.”

The awards are free to enter and nominations are open until 1 February 2016.
