UKWA recognises the best of the UK’s logistics industry

Companies and individuals across the logistics sector were rewarded for their outstanding performance and professionalism at the UKWA Awards 2019, which took place in the presence of HRH, the Princess Royal, at London’s Dorchester Hotel on June 27th.

UKWA CEO, Peter Ward, commented:  “UKWA’s Annual Lunch and Awards has always been widely regarded as one of the premier occasions in the logistics industry’s calendar, but this year felt extra special. Perhaps it was the presence of HRH The Princess Royal or the fact that throughout 2019 UKWA is commemorating its 75<sup>th</sup> year, but there was certainly a ‘buzz’ among the sell-out crowd at the Dorchester throughout the day.

“Our Awards are established as symbols of achievement that emphasise the importance of logistics within today’s economy and the high number and quality of the entries we receive each year underlines the professionalism that runs through the modern logistics industry.

“The Awards reward the developments in new technology that are shaping the way supply chains operate, highlight the importance of training and education within our industry and show the career opportunities that the modern logistics industry offers to ambitious and hard-working young people.

“By showcasing all that is good about our sector UKWA’s Awards amply demonstrate that our industry is fit for purpose and ready to meet the challenges of the digital world today and in the years to come.

“Congratulations to all the finalists and, of course, the winners and special thanks to our award sponsors and event sponsor Savills for their outstanding support.”
