High-achieving passenger transport companies and individuals will be recognised as part of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Australia (CILTA) 2015 Awards for Excellence.

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

CILTA chairman Dr Neville Binning says it’s vital to acknowledge and reward the accomplishments of those who go beyond what’s expected and are leading the way in terms of service delivery and innovation.

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

"I encourage every transport and logistics 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."

Award categories that companies and people within them can be nominated for include excellence in moving people, excellence in safety, excellence in professional development, excellence in government innovation, excellence in transport policy, planning and implementation and young professional of the year.

Nominations close on Friday, September 25 with winners announced in Brisbane on Saturday, November 7.
