The shortlisted finalists for the 2019 Talent in Logistics Awards – the only event dedicated to the recruitment, development, engagement and retention of the people who keep the cogs of the supply chain turning daily – have been revealed today.

The winners of the Talent in Logistics Awards will be revealed during a black-tie event on 27th June 2019 at Hilton DoubleTree, Milton Keynes. Following a drinks reception and three-course meal, celebrity host Rod Woodward will present the awards.
