The 2022 Amazon Everywoman in Transport & Logistics awards are now open for entries.

Now in their 15th year, the awards celebrate the vital contribution women make to transport and logistics showcasing progression, accomplishments and increasing avenues of opportunity within a traditionally male-dominated industry.

There will be two winners per category (Leader and Above and Beyond) as well as one recipient of the Industry Champion, Male Agent of Change, Apprentice of the Year and Woman of the Year Award.

In recognition of the significant role technology has played in transforming the sector, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic, 2022 will see the continued “Tech Innovation Award” that was established last year.

Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of Everywoman, said: “It’s been another extraordinary year for transport and logistics, with a continued need for adaptation and innovation at every level and across growing areas of the industry.

“Now more than ever, it is important that we identify and celebrate the women whose resilience, skills, and leadership are making transport and logistics the dynamic industry that it is and have kept the country moving in persistently difficult times.

“We look forward to shining a spotlight on some of the most exceptional women whose achievements will motivate others to consider a career in a male-dominated industry, paving the way for future generations of ground-breaking women to succeed.”
