In a break with tradition two winners take the Personality of
the Year title at the Multimodal 2024 Awards

The Transport & Logistics sector is celebrating success at this year’s Multimodal Awards, with two industry heavyweights being announced as the Personality of the Year. Sir David Ord and Terence Mordaunt from the Bristol Port Company received the top accolade at the packed industry event on Tuesday 11th June.   

The Multimodal Awards recognise outstanding industry-leading supply chain businesses and individuals, with 880 guests gathering at this year’s ceremony at the NEC. It was the most successful awards evening yet, with 9,000 votes cast and 19 trophies awarded to some of the industry's top performers.  

Winners include Davies Turner, Maritime Transport, Freightliner, MSC, DP World, Maersk, Road to Logistics, iCustoms, Iron Mountain, Sky, Kuehne+Nagel, CEVA, CCL Logistics and Technology, Peel Ports and Forth Ports.

The coveted Sustainability Award was won by Peel Ports, and CCL Logistics & Technology won the Technology Award.  

The most highly anticipated Award of the night is the Personality of the Year. Winners Sir David Ord and Terance Mordaunt were described by organisers as “pioneers in the UK transport scene for the last 35 years”.

Commenting on their achievement, Sir David said; “Terence and I are extremely proud to be named as Personality of the Year winners at Multimodal. Having worked in the industry for perhaps too many years, it is always a particular honour to be recognised by one’s peers and we are thrilled that The Bristol Port Company has received this accolade.”

The Awards are broken down into three categories. One category is judged, the second is awarded by both the organising team and past winners, with the final Awards category voted for by the attendees, exhibitors, visitors and newsletter readers of Multimodal.

The Company of the Year for Air Freight, Road Freight, Rail Freight, Sea Freight, Port and 3PL is voted for by attendees and exhibitors, so it’s a proud title to hold for those who win. This year Davies Turner, Maritime Transport, Freightliner, MSC, DP World and Maersk picked up the award in their respective categories.

Event Director Robert Jervis commented: “We are so proud to deliver an Awards that gives the whole industry representation. Due to the popularity of the event, we opened the nominations process early to give people as much time as possible to vote. We’re delighted that this year’s winners are a mixture of small and large enterprises, all of which represent excellence across the sector. Well done to them all!”
