Last night, at a glittering dinner held at the VOX at Resorts World at the UK’s National Exhibition Centre at Birmingham International Airport, American Airlines Cargo was named ‘Air Cargo Operator of the Year’.
The FTA Multimodal Awards evening hosted some 800 contenders, VIPs and colleagues.
Organisers say the “awards recognise excellence in air, road, rail, maritime, and freight forwarding services.” They are voted for by the thousands of readers of the Multimodal newsletter as well as Freight Transport Association members and exhibitors at Multimodal 2018.
The field this year consisted of Virgin Cargo, American Airlines Cargo, Air Canada Cargo and Antonov Airlines.
The awards 2018 were hosted by Geoff Miller, ex-chairman of selectors for English cricket and took place on the first day of the free-to-attend Multimodal 2018 show at the Birmingham NEC.
Up to 10,000 logistics buyers are expected to visit over 375 exhibitors and take part in a choice of 27 seminar and workshop sessions to hear over 80 expert speakers over the three-day show.
