North West operators celebrated at CILT awards02 July 2014

Leading transport and logistics operators came together last month to applaud the best in the passenger and freight sectors at the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport's (CILT's) 2014 North West Awards for Education and Excellence.

Almost 300 guests attended the gala dinner on 20 June in Liverpool, where 10 awards were presented to individuals and organisations.

Guests also heard from senior traffic commissioner Beverley Bell, Louise Ellman MP and Nikki King OBE, honorary chairman of Isuzu Truck UK.

Simon Reynish, chairman of NW region CILT UK said the standard of finalists and winners was "a great showcase for our industry and the transport and logistics sector here in the north west".

Winners included Les Burton of Stagecoach Merseyside, who picked up a surprise lifetime achievement award after 47 years in the bus industry.

The Best Practice in Freight Transport prize went to Nagel-Langdons, with Merseytravel coming top in the Passenger Transport category.
