Empower I Evolve I Elevate

 On 17 March 2022, at the Royal Lancaster, London, we celebrated the CILT Awards for Excellence 2021. The awards honoured the very best individuals and organisations who have made a significant impact within the logistics and transport profession by helping to keep the country moving.

Hosted by actor, former rugby player and broadcaster Martin Bayfield more than 300 guests gathered in London to celebrate the great and the good of the logistics and transport sector.

CILT’s award for outstanding achievement, the Sir Robert Lawrence Award, was presented by Phil Roe FCILT, CILT Board Member and Chief Customer Officer at DHL to Professor Richard Wilding OBE FCILT.

Commenting on the event, Kevin Richardson, Chief Executive of CILT(UK) said: “I am immensely proud at how our profession and our members have risen to the challenges of the past two years. Shining through all of the entries this year is a commitment to innovation, hard work and dedication. The importance of what our members do day in, day out cannot be overstated, and it is a great pleasure to be able to come together to celebrate the very best talent, people and initiatives in our profession at an event like this one. Congratulations to all of this year’s finalists and winners and for the great work they do.

It was such a delight to be recognised for my work on diversity in the 2020 Awards for Excellence; now being part of the judging panel is a way of giving back to the Institute and our wider profession.
