Fanfare for the Finalists

With this year’s Multimodal 2023 Award finalists announced, don’t delay casting your vote – voting closes on 26th May.

Commenting on the forthcoming awards evening, Multimodal’s event director Robert Jervis says:

“Now in its 16th year, the Multimodal Awards are one of the fairest in the sector as we ensure that all sizes of businesses are represented. And for the first time this year, we introduced a split in two of the awards categories, voted for and independently judged, to make it as equitable as possible to our SMEs during the voting process.

“With an independent nomination and voting system to ensure that all those shortlisted can be proud of their nomination, whether they win or not, East Anglia has always shone brightly in the finalist stage, and this year is no exception.”

Here at Porttalk, we’d like to send our congratulations to the following regional companies for achieving finalist status.

“The Multimodal Award for Road Freight Company of the Year is an important accolade for haulage activity in the UK; R Swain and Sons are delighted to be nominated. We look forward to the voting and wish all nominees the very best during this process.”

With many of the original exhibitors still committed to Multimodal’s ethos, Fargo Systems’ managing director Steve Collins explains what sets the show apart:

“Heading up to the NEC for Multimodal is always a special time for the team. As a founding exhibitor, attendance isn’t just about showcasing our latest logistics software; it’s about community and appreciating what it means to be part of a vital industry that keeps our global economy moving.”
