The nomination deadline for this year’s Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATA) has been extended until 20th April 2010.

The annual ceremony, which takes place at the Dubai’s Grosvenor House hotel on Wednesday 2nd June, will include 16 categories in total, covering the logistics, sea freight and air cargo sectors in the Middle East.

These include the Express Logistics Provider of the Year and 3PL Service Provider of the Year awards, which honour companies that have consistently delivered world-class services and facilities across the region over the past year.

In addition, the FMCG Logistics Manager of the Year category will be awarded to the senior executive that has made a significant difference in managing their company’s in-house supply chain operations.

“Since its inception in 2007, the Supply Chain and Transport Awards have emerged as a leading event for the Middle East logistics industry. Given the market challenges that our industry is facing on a global level at the moment, this is a perfect opportunity to remember those companies and individuals that continue to achieve excellence on a daily basis,” commented Issa Baluch, founder of Swift Global Logistics, who returns to the judging panel for the fourth consecutive year.

Also coming back to the Supply Chain and Transport Awards in 2010 are Captain Mansoor Ghafoor (CEO of STALCO Group and president of National Association of Freight and Logistics), Ali Al Jallaf (vice president of Dubai Airports cargo unit), Dr Kanak Madrecha (senior manager of Dubai World and founding member of the Supply Chain and Logistics Group), Cedwyn Fernandes (MBA programme coordinator at Middlesex University Dubai) and Sebastian Thomas (head of supply chain at ZAFCO).

The panel also welcomes the addition of Alex Borg, regional director of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

“The judging panel has never been stronger and we’re looking forward to receiving this year’s nominations,” added Baluch. “Award ceremonies in general are important in defining the benchmark for excellence and separating the outstanding achiever from the rest of the group. They also provide recognition to the best performers in the field, while inspiring others to emulate their success. This is exactly what we’re hoping to achieve with the SCATAs.”
