Awards for Excellence

Transport professionals are being encouraged to have their efforts recognised

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Australia (CILTA) Annual Awards for Excellence 2014 celebrate the accomplishments of some of the finest passenger, freight and defence transport and logistics companies and individuals in the world.

"This is not just a matter of self-promotion, but an important standard setter for transport and logistics in Australia, and a benchmark internationally," says CILTA Chairman Andrew Stewart.

"I encourage every T&L professional to search for a person or organisation they consider operating at a high or innovative level, and nominate them for our awards.

"We need to highlight our best people and achievements to promote the quality of our whole sector in Australia and internationally."

These awards recognise organisations and individuals that set global benchmarks for best practice in their fields of endeavour and are leaders in the profession, showing world class expertise and innovation in developing and implementing transport and logistics solutions.

Nominations can be submitted until July 25, with Award Winners being announced in Melbourne at Moonee Valley Racecourse on September 6.

The 2014 Award Categories are Safety, Passenger Transport, Humanitarian or Defence Transport and/or Logistics, Operational Excellence, Professional of the Year and Young Professional of the Year.

CILTA would like to thank official media partner Bauer Media and event sponsors, NetSuite, Mack Trucks, Telstra, Coles, DGL, APS, Epico for their support of this event.
