Multimodal awards vote gets underway

[ April 13, 2022   //   ]

Voting has opened for the Multimodal Awards modal categories and entries for the independently-judged categories must be submitted by 3 May

The Modal Awards recognise excellence in air, road, rail, maritime, freight forwarding services, technology, and pallet networks and winners enjoy the accolade of recognition by peers and customers alike as finalists are subject to an open online voting system.

Winning companies will be announced at the Multimodal Awards VIP gala dinner on Tuesday, 14 June at The VOX NEC, Birmingham, UK.

In the independently-judged awards, entries are assessed by a panel of industry experts who apply a rigid scorecard system to ensure objectivity and transparency.

Categories for the judged awards are: The Shipper/Partner of the Year Award; The Multimodal Sustainability Award; The Young Logistics Professional of the Year Award; and, new this year, The Best Innovation in Port Safety Award.

“Last year we had record numbers at the Awards evening gala dinner with 850 guests and this year bookings are even higher,” said multimodal director,  Robert Jervis, Director, Multimodal. “If you would like to attend there are only a few tables remaining and these are expected to be reserved over the next week or so.”

The dinner and ceremony will be hosted by Nigel Owens, the current record holder for number of rugby test matches refereed and the first openly gay man in professional rugby.

The Multimodal 2022 Exhibition takes place at the NEC Birmingham on 14-16 June.
