The Supply Chain industry is now able to nominate the businesses, thought leaders and associations who are leading the sector following the opening of the Multimodal Awards 2023.
With votes cast via the thousands of Multimodal newsletter readers, the exhibitors and visitors to the event, which takes place from 13th –15th June at the NEC, the Multimodal Awards recognise outstanding industry-leading supply chain businesses and individuals.
Organisers have this year split two of the Awards categories, Road and 3PL, to ensure that SMEs also get the recognition they deserve during the voting stages.
This cements the Multimodal Awards as one of the fairest in the sector as it ensures all size of businesses are represented, supported by an industry-leading voting system.
The Multimodal Awards are the highlight of the two-day event, with outstanding businesses and individuals nominated each year. We use an independent nomination and voting system, so all those shortlisted can be certain they are one of the fairest awards in the industry.
As votes are made for the industry, by the industry, winning an award is a true independent endorsement of a company’s or individual’s excellence.Event Director, Robert Jervis
