Now in its 28th year, the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) has opened entries for its 2020 Awards for Excellence, celebrating the best success stories in the profession.

This year, there are 12 awards on offer, in categories as varied as; championing diversity, warehouse operations, passenger transport and environmental improvement. Organisations and individuals have until Friday 22 May to submit their entries. Entrants do not need to be a member of CILT to put themselves forward, and the winners will be announced at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London on Thursday 22 October.

Kevin Richardson, Chief Executive, CILT, says: “For the last century, CILT has built itself on recognising, supporting and celebrating brilliance in our profession. This year’s awards are a chance for organisations to prove that they empower their staff to evolve our profession, as we celebrate success and elevate the profile of individuals and organisations that are succeeding within our challenging, demanding and essential sectors.

“CILT prides itself on the fact that its awards are open to everyone from all over the world, for organisations of all sizes and individuals of all ages and levels of expertise.
