The winners of this year’s Everywoman in Transport and Logistics have been announced, with Wincanton scooping awards in two categories.

The Freight award was presented to Hollie Ridley, a team leader at Wincanton while general manager Tracey Clifford took home a Leader award in the Supply Chain category.

Other winners included Caroline Moody, MD at Moody Logistics, who was presented with a Leader award in the Freight category for her innovation and leadership; Ivy Mwaura, a marketing analyst at FedEx Express won an Infrastructure award and Sainsbury’s senior project manager Katherine Parker won a Warehousing award.

Ridley said: “As big as the transport industry is, it is made up of a small, close-knit community.

“There is always help wherever you look for it, and even in the current times of 2020, we are keeping the country and world stocked with the supplies we need to survive.”

Clifford thanked her team and peers at Wincanton and she added: “I’d also like to thank my daughter who was the inspiration for me to ‘grow up’ and get a proper job as an accountant many, many years ago.”

Moody said: “It’s an honour to be one of a number of inspirational women nominated for these awards in what is a male-dominated industry.

“It sends a strong message to women that they can succeed through hard work, dedication and talent in whatever career they might choose.”

A special Woman of the Year award was presented to Louise Whitehouse, MD of fleet maintenance Europe at FedEx Express, recognising her achievements and also her commitment to helping other women succeed in the industry.

For the first time, the Everywoman awards introduced an International Inspiration category and this was presented to Mexico-based Liliana Pereira, head of operations at consultancy Steer.
