Logistics Mercury Awards to take place on Thursday

20 July, 2010 Sarah Falson 0 comments

The team at Logistics & Materials Handling magazine would like to thank all 25 entrants in the 5th Annual Logistics Mercury Awards, and wish them luck ahead of the official dinner ceremony on 2 September 2010. All the entries this year were top-notch, and our judges have their work cut out for them!

The Logistics Mercury Awards program is a tribute to the logistics and materials handling industries and allows companies from Australia to be publicly-resognised for their achievements in front of their peers. The Awards is an excellent way to boost staff morale, and also to garner interest in your products, solutions and services in front of a captive audience – and perhaps some future business partners!

Last year’s 2009 Logistics Mercury Awards was a great success, with over 150 industry delegates gathered at Dockside on Cockle Bay Wharf, Sydney in November. An enthusiastic crowd celebrated and networked with each other to mark the passion, commitment and hard work they had invested throughout the year. And 2010 will be no different.

Now in its fifth year, the 2010 Awards will recognise companies that have made logistics and supply chain achievements in six areas: Best Manufacturer, Logistics Leader, Young Professional, Technology Application, Top Transport &/or Logistics Provider, and Green Initiative. A Best in Show delegate will be chosen from among these six categories.

The Awards wouldn’t be the success they are without our fantastic sponsors: Century Yuasa, CEVA, Costa Logistics, Loscam and SSI Schaeffer. The team at Logistics & Materials Handling magazine thanks each of these companies for making this program possible. Without this support, the Awards would not be the great success they surely are today.

Companies interested in getting on-board and sponsoring the event can contact key account manager, Richard Bunting, on 02 9422 2718, or email
