FTA Logo

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) welcomes the opportunity to once again partner everywoman for their prestigious FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards.  The UK’s logistics and supply chains rely on women across a whole range of roles, from HGV drivers to managing directors. The industry’s ongoing labour shortage makes it vital for firms to be able to recruit quality staff from a broad talent pool and to recognise the contribution women can make.

 

Category Sponsor - Industry Champion of the Year

ASDA logo

Asda is pleased to continue to support the FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards supporting and celebrating exceptional female talent. We recognise that great leadership sits at the heart of every business.  At Asda we are committed to developing and nurturing colleagues. We have had massive success with our Women in Leadership programme and we have learnt a lot, which we are channelling into maturing our approach around inclusive leadership.

Category Sponsor - Supply Chain

As the global logistics leader, diversity sits high on our agenda. So too do best practice and innovation, which is why we’re delighted to sponsor this year’s Supply Chain Award which combines all three.

By recognising those women who, every day, improve the supply chain by introducing new technologies, demanding sharper analytics, achieving cost-savings or improving the customer experience, we hope to inspire others to follow their example and pursue a career in logistics.

Category Sponsor - Warehousing

Amazon logo

Amazon.com opened on the World Wide Web in 1995. Amazon has invested more than £4.6 billion in the UK economy to build and run its UK business since 2010.
