Malta soon to have its Transport & Logistics Awards
Final preparations are underway for the launch of the first edition of the TransLog Awards. Aimed to create awareness and enhancement of the transport, logistics and supply chain industry in Malta and the Mediterranean region, the TransLog Awards 2014 will be recognizing the efforts and investments in this industry done by the different stakeholders.
“The market opportunities in the Mediterranean region, together with the fierce competition to succeed in the lucrative supply chain and transportation sector, mean that Malta has to deliver an excellence of service that can compete not only locally, but also regionally and globally as well. The TransLog Awards will be acknowledging and highlighting that commitment for the benefit of Maltese companies operating in this sector and industry, and also for the benefit of Malta as a promising centre for a regional transportation, logistics and supply chain hub,” Alex Borg, Director of SSM Group, the organizers of the awards.
Mr Borg is an established trainer and consultant in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and has received international recognition for his work and achievement in this industry in Malta, London and Dubai.
The model of the awards, consisting in a number of categories, is based on international benchmarks and values, and geared towards performance excellence, using international norms and standards systems. The awards will be judged by a panel of distinguished transport and logistics practitioners, academics and business leaders. Winning one of the prestigious awards will generate awareness of that company’s endeavours and show team-members, work-colleagues and all stakeholders that the company is in-step with the very best practice in the Transport, Logistics and Supply Chain thinking and strategy.
Information kits and participation forms will be available this month. Participation in this first edition will be free of charge. Interested companies are invited to write to: [email protected]
