Entries open for first annual Northamptonshire Logistics Awards

The first annual Northamptonshire Logistics Awards competition was launched this week and is now open for entries.

Designed to celebrate the current success and achievements of individuals and teams working in the sector locally, the Awards will raise the profile of the industry, promoting the significant diversity and ongoing excellence of logistics operations based in Northamptonshire.

Whilst the Awards are primarily about today’s outstanding success of the Northamptonshire logistics sector, they will also provide a showcase for the industry’s future workforce locally, encouraging young people currently deciding on their future careers to consider logistics as an option. This will help to ensure that the thousands of new jobs forecasted to be created are filled.

There are seven awards in total: Team of the Year, Young Person of the Year, Inspirer in Schools Community Award, Innovation Award, Large Company of the Year, Small Company of the Year and Achiever of the Year – Northamptonshire Logistics Person of 2016.

Tim Bagshaw, head of business and innovation, NEP, said: “Northamptonshire is at the heart of the logistics industry in the UK. The Northamptonshire Logistics Awards will celebrate the success and achievements of those logistics businesses based in the county.

“Property developments such as the expansion of DIRFT will require many thousands of new employees in the coming years and the Awards will go a long way towards providing much needed insight and inspiration to our potential logistics workforce of the future.”

The Awards are testament to the forward-thinking nature of the new Northamptonshire Logistics Forum who devised the Awards and are backing the launch – one of a series of initiatives the Forum is developing to support the county’s growing Logistics sector.

Deadline for both applications and nominations is Tuesday 29 March 2016.
