Aart Hille Ris Lambers, UK Commercial Director, DP World, was named the Multimodal 2021 Personality of the Year, at a record-breaking awards event.
Eight hundred guests came together at the VOX in Birmingham on the evening of the first day of Multimodal 2021 to celebrate achievement and innovation by companies from across the supply chain during the last 19 months.
Freightliner, Maersk Line, Air Menzies International, CMA CGM Group, Kuehne + Nagel, and The Pallet Network were also winners, with Maritime Transport named Multimodal Exhibitor of the Year 2021.
“It was fantastic to be able to bring so many people together to celebrate the resilience and hard work our industry has demonstrated through so many challenging months,” said Robert Jervis, Multimodal Director.
“We congratulate everyone who was nominated last night, they should be rightly proud of their achievements.
“The way that the industry stepped up during Brexit and COVID has been nothing short of astounding, and we thank all of our supporters for showing up in force to join us at the show and last night.”
Aart Hille Ris Lambers was awarded his prize by a judging panel including a Multimodal selection group and previous winners, and was described last night as having ‘integrity and a willingness to listen to new ideas’, as well as being a ‘thorough professional.’
Exhibitor of the Year Maritime Transport, celebrating 20 years of operations in 2021, was described as ‘truly multi-faceted, flexible, and agile’.
Speedy Freight, DP World UK, and Fargo Systems also took prizes, with Pure Electric and Maersk awarded the Shipper/Partner accolade for a collaborative project, which helped Pure Electric grow business.

CMA CGM Group won the Sustainability Award for setting ambitious CO2 reduction targets and delivering tangible results.
Thousands of readers of the Multimodal Newsletter, as well as visitors to the show and their customers voted for the Modal, Port, 3PL, Pallet Network, and Technology Awards.
