Adele Waite, general manager of a $1.25bn global contract for DHL and who has driven growth of return on capital employed by 740%, won the award for outstanding individual achievement. The corporate title went to Premier Farnell – a global, multi-channel distributor whose chief executive, Harriet Green, was named in the FT’s Top 50 Women in Business.

Women in Logistics, a not-for-profit networking and support group which aims to aid and assist the careers of women in the sector, was established in 2008, and has more than 2,800 members – male and female.

Ruth Waring FCILT, founder of the organisation said: “We were bowled over by both the volume and calibre of entries for our first awards. It’s a shame that each category can only have one winner but Adele and Premier Farnell can be very proud of their awards, knowing that they were hotly contested and well-deserved
