#LearningThroughLogistics, of which Business on the Move is a founding partner, has been named as a finalist in the Diversity Champion category in the 2020 Logistics UK Logistics Awards. The awards, now in their fourth year, are the most prestigious in the sector which is at the heart of every part of the British economy and celebrate the companies and individuals who have made a significant contribution to the logistics and supply chain sectors. The 2020 awards headline sponsor is Port of Dover, and also sponsored by Brigade, Coolkit and Logistics UK Recovery Service.
#LearningThroughLogistics’ entry will now be judged by members of the Logistics UK Board, which includes representatives from some of the country’s most influential logistics businesses. The winners will be announced at a celebratory reception and gala dinner at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London on Thursday 10 December 2020. The glittering event, which has established itself as the pinnacle of recognition for the sector, will be hosted by BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker.
David Wells, Chief Executive of Logistics UK, the only business organisation representing all of the logistics industry, commented: “During the Covid-19 pandemic, our industry has been recognised by government – quite rightfully – as key to the ongoing success of the British economy and our 2020 awards will provide the ideal opportunity to acknowledge the extraordinary achievements of those working in our sector. These finalists represent the ‘best of the best’ of our sector; the businesses and individuals determined to keep Britain trading, both at home and overseas. They have been selected for their outstanding commitment, knowledge and expertise, and represent a wide range of UK companies across transport modes and business sectors.
“With a fantastic number of entrants this year, each shortlisted business had to fight off very tough competition to secure their place in the final line up, and those who scoop the top prizes will be truly at the top of their business games. They should be justly proud of the contribution they are making to both the logistics sector and wider UK economy. Logistics UK’s Logistics Awards are now acknowledged as the blue riband event in the logistics industry’s calendar; a unique chance to celebrate the achievements of one of the UK’s most vital industries, all while enjoying a glittering gala dinner.”
