Tony Bellott, Chair of the Northants Logistics Forum, said: “One in every seven people that work in Northamptonshire are working in the logistics sector. It is a vital part of our local economy, and these awards recognise and celebrate the hard work of the individuals, team and companies from across the sector.” Tony added, “Each year we have more entries, more people attending and the judging process gets tougher, but that is testament to the fantastic businesses that enter. I am really looking forward to this years awards.”
