This event is a great platform for us to do just that and recognise those who demonstrate a significant contribution to the development of our profession. This is an exciting time for logistics and transport, it is full of opportunity and the leaders of our profession have a responsibility to continue to elevate the bar to allow our sectors to thrive.”
