Australian Freight Industry Awards Welcoming Entries

One of the most awaited award ceremonies in the industry, the Australian Freight Industry Awards or AFIA, is held yearly with the organization of VTA or Victoria Transport Association. For 2018, the organization is proud to announce that transport companies in Perth many now send in their entries as registration is now open. The event is celebrated in honour of all operators in the logistics and freight industry. It is also a way for them to be rewarded with their outstanding efforts and the accomplishments they have received in the country.

AFIA is going to celebrate its 29 years since it began and for this year the sponsors are going to be Viva Energy Australia together with TWUSuper. The awards are one of the most prestigious in the industry therefore many companies are vying for it. VTA also announced that this year they are opening a new category which will award the best female in the transport sector that exhibited excellent leadership.

Peter Anderson, the CEO of VTA, said that the goal of the Australian Freight Industry Awards is to give recognition to transport operators all over the industry regardless of the sector and categories they are in. He added that they are going to add a new award which is called the Female Leadership in Transport Award to give praise to companies who are making steps to ensure that there is gender equality in the workforce and diversity among their employees.

Due to the addition of a new award, this year there will be seven awards to be given including the Investment in People Award to be given by Logical Staffing Solutions, the Personality of the Year Award to be awarded by Victorian Government, the Best Practice Safety Award from CMV Truck & Bus, the Young Achiever of the Year Award which Daimler Truck & Bus sponsored, the Application of Technology Award from Transport Certification Australia and the Waste & Recycling Award courtesy of National Transport Insurance.

Anderson is now encouraging transport companies in Perth and companies under the logistics and freight sector to register in order to become a part of the AFIA.
