The North West Region of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) have launched the nominations for the inaugural North West Awards in Logistics and Transport.
The awards aim to recognise achievements, encourage the highest standards and a professional approach to the practice within the North West. Awards will be made to individuals and organisations that can demonstrate achievement in logistics and transport management. They are open to organisations of all sizes including companies, the armed forces, public utilities, charities, health services, local authorities and government agencies.
There are six categories
* North-West Student of the Year
* North-West Young Manager of the Year
Sponsored by John Roberts Search & Selection
* Industry Best Practice
Sponsored by Faber Maunsell AECOM
* Environmental Improvement

The awards will be presented at the CILT(UK) Cheshire Group First Annual Dinner on Friday 5th June at Cranage Hall, one of Cheshires more exciting but easily accessible settings.
CILTs North West Region Chairman Simon Reynish says: Recognition of individuals and organisations working in logistics & transport in the North West of England is long overdue and I hope that this inaugural presentation will be the start of a tradition that the area and the industry can be justly proud.
Mr Reynish also commended the North West companies who, in spite of the current difficult economic climate, had already committed to sponsoring an award or part of the occasion and challenged others to take up the remaining opportunities to support the event.
