The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Southern Section Dinner event

Following the cancellation of the National awards dinner (due to COVID restrictions) the CILT Southern section committee decided to hold a regional dinner event. This was held on Friday 6 November at the Hagley Oval pavilion in Christchurch.

It was very pleasing to have a good turn out for this event which was well supported by our members and others from our industry. It was also an opportunity to connect, network and reflect on the successes of 2020. 

We took this opportunity to present the CILT national awards to members from our region and those in attendance, it was great to recognise these achievements, in what has been a challenging year.

The below awards were presented on the night, well done to all our award winners.
