Port of Dover shortlisted in two FTA Logistics Awards 2019

The Port of Dover has been named as a finalist in the Diversity Champion and Water Business of the Year categories in the 2019 FTA Logistics Awards.

The awards, now in their third year, celebrate the companies and individuals who have made a significant contribution to the logistics and supply industry and have become acknowledged as the ultimate celebration of one of the UK’s most important industry sectors. FTA’s Logistics Awards 2019 are sponsored by CEVA Logistics, FTA Recovery and Santander.

The Port’s entry will now be judged by the FTA’s Board, which represents some of the country’s most influential logistics businesses. The winners will be announced at a celebratory reception and gala dinner at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London on Thursday 24 October 2019.

David Wells, Chief Executive of FTA, the only business organisation representing all of the logistics industry, commented:

“These finalists represent the ‘best of the best’ of our sector; the businesses and individuals determined to keep Britain trading, both at home and overseas. They have been selected for their outstanding commitment, knowledge and expertise, and represent a wide range of UK companies across transport modes and business sectors. With a record number of entrants this year, each shortlisted business had to fight off very tough competition to secure their place in the final line up, and those who scoop the top prizes will be truly at the top of their business games. They should be justly proud of the contribution they are making to both the logistics sector and wider UK economy."

“The Logistics Awards truly is the blue riband event in the logistics industry’s calendar; a unique chance to celebrate the achievements of one of the UK’s most vital industries, all while enjoying world-class entertainment - this year, from comedian Ed Byrne - as well as a glittering gala dinner.”

Richard Christian, Head of Policy & Communications at the Port of Dover adds:

“We are delighted to have been shortlisted twice amongst such a high calibre of nationally renowned logistics companies. Our two finalist entries show that the Port of Dover is at the forefront of UK trade, and that a highly talented, diverse and can-do team has a huge impact on the successful running of the business.”

Efficient logistics is vital to keep Britain trading, directly having an impact on more than seven million people employed in the making, selling and moving of goods. With Brexit, new technology and other disruptive forces driving change in the way goods move across borders and through the supply chain, logistics has never been more important to UK plc.  A champion and challenger, FTA speaks to Government with one voice on behalf of the whole sector, with members from the road, rail, sea and air industries, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers.
