Multimodal opens voting for finalists of its modal awards as judged awards entry date fast approaches


Voting has opened for the Multimodal Awards Modal Categories as of 12th April, while the independently-judged categories must be entered by 3rd May.

The Modal Awards recognise excellence in air, road, rail, maritime, freight forwarding services, technology, and pallet networks and winners enjoy the accolade of recognition by peers and customers alike as finalists are subject to an open online voting system.

The winning companies will be announced at the Multimodal Awards VIP gala dinner on Tuesday, 14th June, 2022 at The VOX NEC, Birmingham, UK.

In the independently-judged awards, entries are assessed by a panel of industry experts who apply a rigid scorecard system to ensure objectivity and transparency.

Categories for the judged awards are: The Shipper/Partner of the Year Award; The Multimodal Sustainability Award; The Young Logistics Professional of the Year Award; and, new this year, The Best Innovation in Port Safety Award.

“Last year we had record numbers at the Awards evening gala dinner with 850 guests and this year bookings are even higher,” said Robert Jervis, Director, Multimodal.

“If you would like to attend there are only a few tables remaining and these are expected to be reserved over the next week or so.”

The gala dinner and ceremony at The VOX NEC Birmingham, will be hosted by Nigel Owens, the current record holder for number of rugby test matches refereed and the first openly gay man in professional rugby.

“The Multimodal Awards are a great networking function and the perfect event for the transport and logistics industry to come together and applaud the fantastic job it has done throughout the pandemic and continues to do as it endures political unrest and COVID uncertainty,” said Jervis.

“We are receiving record numbers of award entries, which marks a terrific endorsement of them by the UK and Ireland transport and logistics industry.”

Logistics UK is the awards’ headline sponsor, other sponsors are Dennison Trailers, Maritime Transport, and Ports Skills & Safety. Further sponsorship opportunities are available upon enquiry.

The Multimodal 2022 Exhibition takes place at the NEC Birmingham between the 14th and 16th June 2022.

The free-to-attend event brings logistics buyers together with supply chain innovators at an exhibition that will also include a programme of seminars and panel debates covering the latest industry trends.
