The CILT(UK)’s Annual Awards for Excellence, which aim to recognise achievements, encourage the highest standards and take a professional approach to the practice of logistics and transport, will be held on Thursday, October 24.

The awards are billed by organisers as a way of identifying those organisations and individuals whose performance has been outstanding, a sign they are leaders in their field.

The idea is that regardless of the size of the organisation, excellence is achievable, and the institute actively encourages entries from organisations of all sizes and sectors.

Pall-Ex and Cooper Parry have been shortlisted as part of the CILT Annual Awards for Excellence.

The European palletised freight network has been nominated as part of the Information Management category for its work with business advisers Cooper Parry on the launch of NAVistics.

Integrated with Pall-Ex’s own TWINE IT system, NAVistics provides a fully functional ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution for SME hauliers and logistics companies.  

Director of IT at Pall-Ex Sean Sherwin-Smith, said:

“For NAVistics to gain recognition from the industry it was designed to help, is obviously hugely rewarding.

“Since launching in January, it has already made a difference to many in the sector, bringing about savings of up to £20,000 in operational costs for individual businesses.”

Vicky Playford, IT Director at Cooper Parry, said “We are delighted that Navistics has been shortlisted as a finalist in such prestigious awards. We spent a lot of time identifying what logistics operations need and produced a product that is inherently scalable, so we can sell it out of the box with very rapid deployment.  We’ll continue to develop the product in line with what our customers say and want.”

The winners of the CILT Annual Awards for Excellence will be announced 24 October at the Lancaster London Hotel.

The Annual Awards Dinner will be held at the Lancaster London Hotel at which the winners will be announced and the awards will be presented. The event is attended by finalists, sponsors, members and their guests and offers one of the year’s good networking opportunities where individuals, companies, clients and guests mix with like-minded professionals and meet the best within the industry.
