I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to all the YLP Award 2022 candidates and most particularly to the four regional winners for their impressive dissertations. They have managed to put into words complex processes of the global supply chain while taking into account diverse parameters.

“All four regions were represented by a variety of impressive entries and the judges were struck by the high incidence of projects requiring close consideration of environmental factors and prioritising sustainability. Multimodal solutions were to the fore and in addition to medical supplies, cargoes featured included insecticides, rail tracks, military ordinance, drilling rods and a satellite. We never tire of reading about the innovative approaches to logistical challenges employed by our young professionals. TT Club as ever is both proud and encouraged by the high levels of competence portrayed throughout the sector and is committed to maintaining its long-lasting support for the awards.” says Mike Yarwood, Managing Director Loss Prevention, TT Club and Chair of the Panel of Judges.

TT Club as ever is both proud and encouraged by the high levels of competence portrayed.

Both FIATA and TT Club are thrilled to continue recognising the inspirational and dynamic minds of the young logistics professionals’ community. As we slowly move away from the pandemic, FIATA and TT Club are looking forward to returning to the physical competition format. This year and if the conditions allow, the four regional winners will present their dissertations at the FIATA World Congress in Busan, South Korea, during a dedicated session with the final judging and announcement of the YLP Global Winner 2022. This will be a wonderful opportunity for the regional winners to fully immerse themselves in the freight forwarding community and meet their counterparts in Korea's marine capital city. Stay tuned!
