Celebrating success in the county’s logistics sector

Thursday 23rd March 2017

Following the success of last year’s first ever Northamptonshire Logistics Awards, the Northamptonshire Logistics Forum will host its second annual ceremony on Friday 12th May at Franklins Gardens in Northampton.

Organised by the Northamptonshire Logistics Forum - a forum facilitated by Northamptonshire Growth Hub and made up of over 115 logistics companies county-wide - this year’s ceremony will include nine categories and a selection of individual and team awards.

Companies have until 9am on Thursday 20th April to make their nominations via the new Northamptonshire Logistics Forum website –

Tony Bellott, Chair of the Northamptonshire Logistics Forum said: “Northamptonshire is at the heart of the logistics sector in the UK so it is important we recognise exceptional teams and individuals working in the sector, and promote the excellence of logistics operations across the county.

“The nomination process is an exciting time and I have no doubt that some of the stories put forward will be inspiring. It is these stories that highlight just how rewarding a career in the logistics industry can be and help raise the profile of logistics jobs to young people. We are also looking forward to announcing details our bursary during the ceremony, which is for people in the sector to help further development.

“The Northamptonshire Logistics Awards last year was a complete sell-out and we are positive that with a bigger capacity venue and performances by Northampton College performing arts students, the event will once again be a huge success.”

Sara Homer, Executive Chair of Brackmills BID, added: “We are delighted to be sponsoring one of the categories and are proud to be at the heart of the logistics community. We would urge businesses to enter, sponsor awards and join us in this county wide celebration.”

The Judging Panel will comprise of representatives from leading logistics organisations including The University of Northampton, Northampton College and Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce.
