It’s now or never as Logistics Middle East Awards open for nominations
The Swedish former world No. 1 tennis player Björn Rune Borg, widely considered to be one of the greatest in the history of the sport, once said that “If you're afraid of losing, then you daren't win.” And it’s an apt thought as we head into the planning and nominations phase ahead of the annual Logistics Middle East Awards – the most high-profile logistics awards ceremony in the region.
There are 11 categories, six judges, an anticipated 300+ guests at 1 massive awards evening. See the video below from last year:

You out on the chance to show your appreciation to your team of their hard work, the chance to network with hundreds of the most high-profile individuals in the regional logistics industry at the event itself, and of course the main benefit: being recognised in front of all your peers, competitors and clients for your achievements.
The Logistics Middle East Awards trophy adorns some of the most prominent logistics leaders’ mantelpieces and our winners are promoted extensively through ITP Media Group’s logistics and transport portfolio of publications.
