As the logistics and supply chain industry looks forward to Multimodal 2024 this summer, organisers have announced which businesses have been nominated as Finalists for the prestigious Modal section of its Awards.

Recognising outstanding achievements in air, road, rail, maritime and freight across the logistics sectors, voting for this year’s Multimodal Awards Finalists opened earlier than normal to give the industry more time to vote. Over the last few weeks, nominations have been cast from registered visitors and exhibitors attending Multimodal 2024, which takes place from 11th –13th June at Birmingham’s NEC.

The Multimodal Awards are independent endorsements for excellence across supply chain businesses and individuals, and ensures all sizes of businesses are represented, supported by an industry-leading voting system. This makes the Awards one of the fairest in the sector.

Event Director Robert Jervis commented: “The Multimodal Awards have always been popular so opening the nomination process early allowed even more of the sector to make their nominations. We make sure all size of businesses are represented and use an independent nomination and voting system to ensure that all those shortlisted can be proud of their nomination.

“The Awards are the highlight of Multimodal, allowing the industry to come together and celebrate outstanding performance across several sectors.”
