The awards will be presented later this month and the organisers have been delighted by what they deem a”fantastic” response.
The awards are about the current outstanding success of the Northamptonshire logistics sector, providing a showcase for the industry’s future workforce locally and encouraging young people currently deciding on their future careers to consider logistics as an option.
Tim Bagshaw, head of business and innovation at Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership, said: “On behalf of everyone involved with the Northamptonshire Logistics Awards this year, I would like to thank all those who committed their time and energy to submitting entries into the competition.
“The quality of submissions was such that arriving at a list of finalists was not an easy process.”
The awards dinner takes place on April 20, courtesy of John Lewis. A special Lifetime Achievement Award will also be presented in recognition of a significant contribution to the logistics industry both locally and nationally.
