Leaders from operators including TNT, DHL Supply Chain and DB Cargo UK were honoured at the FTA Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards last week.

At a lavish ceremony in the London Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square, the dedicated freight awards were handed to DB Cargo UK's head of planning Kate Turner for going above and beyond, with the Leader category awarded to Diamond Distribution MD Keely Priestman.

In the Supply Chain category, the Above and Beyond award went to Asda's senior manager operating model June Jones, and the victory in the Leader category was claimed by TNT's national same day manager for storage fashion and solutions Faye Calland.

Everywoman co-founder Maxine Benson said the winners "represent those making a real difference to transport and logistics - whether it’s through the remarkable transformations they’ve made to the companies they work for, or the innovative businesses they have built from the ground-up".

David Wells, chief executive of sponsor FTA, added: “In such economically challenging times, it is vital that the sector continues to attract the very best talent, by celebrating successful individuals of all ages and showcasing inspirational role models."
