Last night saw the annual Motor Transport Awards take place at Grosvenor House on Park Lane in London, which celebrate innovation and achievement in the industry.
Microlise were present in various guises; as guests, a judge, and with two of the team spending the evening working for Transaid, helping to raise money for the charity we have supported since 2015. Though we await confirmation, we believe well over £20,000 was raised on the night which was a fantastic result!
With comedian John Bishop hosting, and Gabby Logan interviewing winners, there wasn’t a dull moment and it was great to be at such a large scale event celebrating excellence in the transport industry.
With categories covering everything from safety and compliance, to fleet operator and truck of the year, the Motor Transport Awards play an important role in promoting excellence within our industry. We were very pleased to see a number of our customers short-listed and many winning in their categories.
Congratulations to all the winners. It’s really easy to underestimate the importance of awards events, but they do play a crucial role in driving the industry forward.
