The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Australia (CILTA) Annual Awards for Excellence 2014 celebrate the accomplishments of some of the finest passenger, freight and defence transport and logistics companies and individuals in the world.

"This is not just a matter of self-promotion, but an important standard setter for transport and logistics in Australia. And a benchmark internationally." CILTA Chairman Andrew Stewart says.

"I encourage every T&L professional to search for a person or organisation they consider operating at a high or innovative level, and nominate them for our awards. We need to highlight our best people and achievements to promote the quality of our whole sector in Australia and internationally."

The awards recognise organisations and individuals that set global benchmarks for best practice in their fields of endeavour and are leaders in the profession, showing world class expertise and innovation in developing and implementing transport and logistics solutions.
