Logistics sector to battle for Middle East awards
Hundreds of figureheads from the Middle East logistics industry will gather in Dubai tomorrow night (9th May) for the fifth annual Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATA).
The ceremony, which takes place at the five-star Zabeel Saray Hotel, will include 16 categories in total, covering the entire supply chain and transportation sector – with awards for 3PL company of the year, express logistics company of the year, and supply chain of the year, amongst others.
Finalists include the likes of Aramex, TNT Express, GAC Logistics, Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority, Emirates SkyCargo, Qatar Airways Cargo, Maximus Air Cargo, Dubai International Airport, Gulf Warehousing Company (GWC) and DP World.
“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, president of the Dubai-based National Association of Freight and Logistics (NAFL), who returns to the judging panel for a fifth consecutive year.
Also coming back to the awards in 2011 are Salma Hareb (CEO of Economic Zones World), Alex Borg (regional director of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport) and Sebastian Thomas (head of supply chain at ZAFCO).
The panel also welcomes the addition of Shashi Shekhar (president of the Supply Chain and Logistics Group), Warith Kharusi (chairman of Oman Logistics Association), Syed Mustafa (CEO of Almajdouie Logistics World), and Nigel Moore (managing director of Logistics Executive in the Middle East and Africa).
