2022 Amazon Everywoman in Transport & Logistics finalists announced

Everywoman trophies

The finalists for the 2022 Amazon Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards have been announced.

The awards, now in its 15th year, celebrate the vital contribution women make to transport and logistics across all sectors – from freight to retail to automotive, maritime and air transport.

This year’s finalists demonstrate the progression, accomplishments and increasing avenues of opportunity.

Whilst more women have taken up senior roles since the awards launched 15 years ago, they still only account for 20% of the workforce.

Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of Everywoman, said: “We are thrilled to announce the finalists for the 2022 Amazon Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards. It’s been another extraordinary year for transport and logistics, with a continued need for adaptation and innovation at every level and across growing areas of the industry.

“In our finalists we identify and celebrate the passion, dedication, skills, and leadership that are making transport and logistics dynamic and resilient, and that kept the country moving in persistently difficult times.

“We look forward to the awards ceremony where we can shine a spotlight on some of the most exceptional women whose achievement will motivate others to consider a career in a male-dominated industry, paving the way for future generations of ground-breaking women to succeed.”

The awards will recognise two winners per category: one successful industry ‘Leader’ and one individual at any stage in their career who is going ‘Above and Beyond’ for their business.

There are also awards for an Industry Champion, Male Agent of Change, Apprentice of the Year and Woman of the Year Award.

Kerry-Anne Lawlor, country director of Amazon Logistics, said: “Amazon is proud to support the Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards and to celebrate the exceptional achievements of women in the industry, showcasing them as role models for the next generation.

“As a company it is important to us to inspire women to continue to drive innovation and new ways of thinking and to develop fulfilling careers by providing opportunities for all. Congratulations to all the worthy finalists!”

The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony held on June 30, 2022, in London.
