Awards info


Title Partner


The Freight Transport Association is delighted to be the Title Partner of the 2015 FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards for the third year.  This event showcases how women can make a successful and fulfilling career in transport. A staggering 2.2 million people work in transport and logistics in the UK, but less than a quarter of these employees are female. The current driver shortage crisis illustrates the need for our industry to access a wider talent pool in order to meet its need for good quality staff.  We are pleased to encourage forward-thinking companies that are committed to introducing diversity to the freight industry, and working further with everywoman offers FTA opportunities to expand that work.

FTA is able to trace its origins back to 1889 and is recognised as the voice of the freight and logistics industry, representing the transport interests of companies moving goods by road, rail, sea and air.  FTA members operate over 220,000 goods vehicles – half the UK fleet – consign over 90 per cent of the freight moved by rail and 70 per cent of sea and air freight.
