Transport and logistics sector celebrates top female achievers27 May 2016

TNT Express head of operations Caroline Rose has scooped the top prize at the 2016 FTA Everywoman in Transport & Logistics awards, held in London yesterday (26 May).

Judges said she is a visionary team leader, with a proven track record for leading teams and projects. Many of her ideas have been adopted by the wider TNT Group at a global level.

Other category winners included: Brighton & Hove Bus and Coach Company’s Rachel Beckett (rising star of the year); Kirsty Sando of Heathrow Express (driver of the year); and Transport for London’s Jo Field (industry champion of the year).

Awards co-founder Maxine Benson MBE said: “The women celebrated today come from a variety of backgrounds and highlight what makes the industry so great – they are breaking barriers, changing perceptions, and are role models for others, both those already forging a career in the industry and those who have never even considered it.”

FTA chief executive David Wells said: “There is all too often a public misconception about what transport and logistics actually delivers, and recruiting women into our industry suffers as a result. We are delighted and extremely proud to once again be the title partner of these prestigious awards.”

The FTA Everywoman in Transport & Logistics awards were launched nine years ago to raise awareness of the careers on offer to women in transport and logistics.
