“The judges were impressed with the quality and breadth of the entries”
The very best of the UK’s logistics businesses are celebrating today after being shortlisted for Logistics UK’s 2020 Logistics Awards, sponsored by Port of Dover. The awards celebrate supply chain leadership and excellence and recognise leaders who have made a significant contribution to the industry, either as individuals or as businesses.

“Without the expertise, knowledge and dedication of our shortlist, British industry and commerce would find it impossible to keep the wheels of business moving,” says David Wells, Chief Executive of Logistics UK.

“The judges were impressed with the quality and breadth of the entries, and those who have made it to the shortlist should be proud of the contribution they are making to both the logistics sector and wider UK economy. To walk away with the top prize, they will undoubtedly be the best of the best.”
