Two new categories for sustainability and technology launched for the Multimodal 2021 Awards in October


New categories in sustainability and technology will recognise supply chain leaders for their commitment to excellence at the Multimodal 2021 Awards on October 19th at the VOX Birmingham, UK.

Entries are open for the awards, which include eight voted for, three judged, and two nominated categories.

Thousands of readers of the Multimodal newsletter will vote for best in breed across the modes, as well as best port, pallet network, 3PL, and as of this edition, best technology company.

A judging panel will award a shipper and a young logistics professional of the year as well as a sustainability award.

“The supply chain industry has been at the coalface in the fight against the pandemic over the last year and a half and it is important that we now take time to recognise our achievements and reward companies and individuals for going the extra mile,” said Robert Jervis, Event Director, Multimodal.

“This year, as well as celebrating companies across the modes, we will be shining a light on businesses who are committed to creating long term value, taking into account how they operate in the ecological, social, and economic environment.

“We also want to recognise tech innovators who are doing so much to drive our industry forwards.”

The awards, now in their seventh edition, recognise excellence and best practice across the logistics industry.

Nominations for the voted awards can be made online at before the sixth of August 2021, with entries for the judged awards made by the third of September 2021.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner and ceremony at the VOX NEC Birmingham hosted by legendary footballer and England international Kevin Keegan.

The Awards take place on the first evening of the Multimodal 2021 Exhibition, which takes place at the NEC Birmingham between the 19th and the 21st October.

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.
