Our 2023 winner was Chris Pratt of EPD Insulation Group who was awarded first place in the competition at our Birmingham Transport Manager conference on 30th November. Our runner up is Sarah Wilkes-Jones from Brakes and two finalists are Fiona Hamilton from Constellation Cold Logistics and Andrew Moore from FareShare Midlands. 


What our winner said:

“Looking back from when I started my career as a van driver aged 17, I have always been motivated and found ways for me to grow within the transport industry. From enrolling myself on the ‘Young Driver Scheme Initiative’ aged 18 to becoming the transport manager at EPD Insulation Group. I am very grateful for the support of my team and EPD Insulation Group. With the encouragement, support and teamwork within EPD Insulation Group, I was able to become a finalist for Transport Manager of the year nominations. I was very proud to be announced as the winner of 2023, and being surrounded by the highest calibre of representatives in the logistic industry was the icing on the cake. Encouraging young people into the industry is important to me. I feel Transport & Logistics is not encouraged enough as a career for young people.”

Chris Pratt, Transport Manager of the Year Winner 2023.
