Northamptonshire Logistics Awards 2021

It was worth the wait as the Northamptonshire Logistics Awards, held at the Royal and Derngate last Friday (September 10th), was a resounding success.

There was an air of expectation, both for our first major 'in person' event since lockdown, but also for the finalists, wondering if they had been successful.

Across the twelve categories of award we had some amazing winners, and even more amazing stories culminating in a standing ovation for the winner of our Chairman's Special Award - Marisa Baker and Encore - who showed how a random act of kindness can have such a profound impact on an individual's life.

It was also great to see the myth, that logistics and transport is a man's world, get blown into touch, and so inspiring to see young people coming through and being recognised as the 'future of logistics'.

As always, given the high calibre of entries this year, there were a few who just missed out! I have absolutely no doubt they will come back stronger next year and in the meantime will give the best possible service which their customers have come to appreciate; in particular I'd like to mention Dawn Girardi (Pegasus training) and Ben Bouttell (Carro Transport).

It was also a pleasure to welcome the winner of our Forklift Driver of the Year competition, Will Laki from Clipper, as he joined us for the evening.

It was a true celebration of success for the sector, and plans are already being made for 2022! It would be great to hear from any of you interested in the event for 2022, or if you have any ideas you'd like to share.
