Progressing in a transport planning career

Nichola is an accomplished professional who has completed the Transport Planning Society’s Professional Development Scheme to become an incorporated Transport Planner.

"With the support of my mentors and wider team, the PDS process has helped me to become a more rounded Transport Planner and given me more confidence in my skills and abilities. I am now moving forward to look towards Chartered Transport Planning Professional (CTPP)," explains Nichola.

Highlighting the best in the logistics and transport profession

The CILT Awards for Excellence highlight the very best in the logistics and transport profession and recognise those who are making changes across the sector. Despite a challenging period for the industry, the judges were heartened by the nominations, with organisations demonstrating their drive for innovation and commitment to development.

Kevin Richardson, Chief Executive, CILT(UK), said: “Without the hard work and dedication of our members in the transport, logistics and associated supply chain sectors, our lives would look very different. During what has been an undoubtedly difficult year, our profession has rose to the occasion and continued to provide an essential service while continuously seeking to improve."

“At CILT, we know that away from the media spotlight are untold numbers of people and organisations who are working tirelessly to supply the UK with goods from markets near and far. These people work day and night, often in difficult or uncomfortable conditions, and deserve our praise," he added.

“That is why it is so important that we come together in 2022 to recognise the best of the profession. From my conversations with members, I know that the focus on improving processes and deploying new technologies for the benefit of organisations and consumers has continued despite the challenges of the past year, and I am excited to share some of those stories...”

The finalists were selected by an expert judging panel from a wide array of entries.
