Logistics UK announces record breaking shortlist for 2022 Logistics Awards

Thursday 03 November 2022

The shortlist for Logistics UK’s prestigious Logistics Awards 2022 has been revealed, following receipt of a record number of entries – around double the figure received in previous years. Logistics UK’s Board – which comprises representatives from some of the country’s most influential logistics businesses – will now complete the final round of judging before winners are announced at the highly anticipated 2022 celebratory awards dinner. This will take place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge on the evening of Thursday 8 December 2022.

The awards – sponsored by Kärcher – recognise and celebrate the companies and individuals that have made a significant contribution to the logistics and supply industry in the past 12 months. The not-to-be-missed celebratory event will include a glittering champagne reception – sponsored by DDC FPO – and three course meal, with entertainment to be provided by talented magician Marc Spelmann and quick-witted comedian and actress Kerry Godliman. 

Kevin Green, Director at Logistics UK, comments: “Logistics businesses have once again shown their value to the UK’s economy this year. The quality, and quantity, of entries received shows just how important our sector is, and our shortlist truly represents the best of the businesses and individuals who have delivered outstanding work throughout the year. I would like to personally thank all those who entered and congratulate all our shortlisted entries; the judges will have a hard task to select winners from such an impressive roster.”
