For more than 100 years, CILT has celebrated the brightest talent and the most innovative organisations, recognising those who continue to raise standards and move the profession forward.


Now in their 28th year, the prestigious CILT Awards for Excellence are a chance for organisations to empower their staff to evolve the profession, as we use this platform to elevate the profile of individuals and organisations and celebrate their successes.


The CILT Awards for Excellence are the ultimate seal of approval for those involved in logistics and transport, and are assessed by expert judging panels made up of sixty industry-leading volunteer professionals.


This year, there are 12 awards on offer, with shortlisted nominees being invited as a guest of CILT to join more than 400 industry leaders and experts at the CILT Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner, on Thursday 22nd October 2020 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel London.

CILT is proud that our awards are open to everyone from all over the world, for organisations of all sizes and individuals of all ages and levels of expertise. Organisations may enter as many award categories as they wish, but the same individual project may not be entered into more than one category.


The CILT Awards for Excellence are free to enter and entrants do not need to be a member of CILT to put themselves forward for this renowned event.


By recognising outstanding achievement in logistics and transport, the CILT Awards for Excellence are a fantastic opportunity to benchmark against industry peers and gain enhanced brand credibility.
