The closing date for the 2015 FTA Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards on the 2 February (at midnight) is upon us.

Now in its eighth year, the awards recognise the talents of remarkable women in transport and logistics and in doing so aim to encourage more women to consider a career in the sector.

Everywoman and the FTA are calling for organisations, HR leaders and individuals in the industry to nominate colleagues or peers who are making a difference in their organisation now (self nominations are also encouraged).

Former award-winners include fleet planning engineers, warehouse operatives, directors, drivers and site managers, from large organisations such as DHL, Asda and Tesco through to small and medium enterprises.

The awards continue to raise the profile of winners and their organisations, Jane Curl-Cater, 2014 Woman of the Year and DHL site manager said: "Winning the award has enhanced my profile, resulting in recognition from my company, receiving invitations to forums, events and functions where I have met some amazing and inspirational people.

"What wasn’t expected were the compliments and recognition I received from both my customers and my suppliers, which is not only a positive for me but a positive for my organisation."
