One of the UK's biggest business groups, Logistics UK, has announced the winners of its sixth annual Logistics Awards, following a celebratory gala dinner held at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge on Thursday 8 December. Entertainment was provided by talented magician Marc Spelmann and comedian and actress Kerry Godliman. With full multimodal representation in the entries from road, rail, sea and air including operators, manufacturers, logistics and supporting industries, the awards – sponsored by Kärcher – recognise and celebrate the companies and individuals that have made a significant contribution to the logistics and supply industry in the past 12 months.

Shortlisted entrants working across all freight sectors were recognised for their outstanding commitment, knowledge and expertise. This year there were several new categories and a record number of entries, with businesses including DFDS Cold Chain England, GB Railfreight, cargo.one and GPS Marine Contractors Ltd scooping awards. Kara Buckley, Sales Executive at DHL Parcel UK was named the Rising Star for 2022 and Andrew Malcolm of The Malcolm Group, who has run his family business with huge success for the past 40 years, was presented with the annual Lifetime Achievement award.

David Wells OBE, Chief Executive of Logistics UK, commented: "Resilience is the watchword which is synonymous with logistics, and you should all be incredibly proud of the work you have done in the past 12 months to keep trade flowing and customers happy. What other industry would quietly cope with all the challenges and continue to deliver when the working environment seemingly changes every week? The fact that shops, schools, hospitals, building projects, infrastructure and factories continue to provide what their customers require is testament to your hard work right across the UK. Our industry is one which I am very proud to work in, and I congratulate all those shortlisted, and to the winners, you really are the crème de la crème."
