Press Release: FORS retains CILT Awards sponsorship for fourth year

picFORS, the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme, is to sponsor the Freight Transport Best Practice award category at the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) Annual Awards for Excellence on 18 October.

It will be the fourth year in succession that FORS has supported this important annual event, staged again this year at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London. The CILT Annual Awards for Excellence ‘recognises the achievements of individuals and business to promote the highest professional standards in logistics and transport’.

“The calibre of the shortlisted companies at last year’s awards was extremely high,” said FORS Director, John Hix, “with Kuehne & Nagel, Wincanton and National Express among 15 major players to emerge as winners.”

FORS continues to support the Freight Transport Best Practice category which was won in 2017 by McGee Group (Holdings) Ltd in Colnbrook, Berkshire. “McGee demonstrated a clear focus on the FORS key competencies of safety, efficiency and environmental practice,” said Hix,  “and moreover, the steps it has taken to improve them. We expect equally high standards from nominees this year,” he said, “and we’re very pleased to be in support of the awards once again.”

The 2018 CILT Annual Awards for Excellence is again expected to attract leading transport professionals from across industry. Category nominations will be open from 19th February.
