Air Cargo News Awards deadline extended

The entry deadline for this year’s Air Cargo News Awards is being extended by 10 days due to popular demand.

Due to a wave of requests, companies now have until June 17 at 5pm (BST) to submit their entries.

The awards are now in their 40th year and recognise the achievements of the air cargo industry – from innovative solutions for complex transport challenges to investments in new technologies, services and innovations.

There are nine trophies up for grabs, including the all-new Young Airfreight Professional of the Year Award – recognising the rising stars of the airfreight market.

Meanwhile, the ultimate airline accolade – the Cargo Airline of the Year Award – will this year be an entered award.

The categories include:

★ Air Cargo Environment Award
★ Young Airfreight Professional of the Year
★ Air Cargo Pharma Award
★ Cargo Airline of the Year
★ Cargo Hub of the Year
★ Ground Handler of the Year
★ GSSA of the Year
★ Innovation Award – Digital
★ Innovation Award – Product

The winners will be announced during a daytime awards lunch (12:00 – 16:00) at the Royal Lancaster London hotel on October 23.

More details on how to enter, criteria for each category and tips on entering can be found at

Once entrants have read the criteria, they use the simple online system to explain in 1,000 words why your company should be recognised as the best in the business.

Judges will be looking for companies to demonstrate how they have outperformed their competitors, offering innovative and market-leading solutions.

After the entries have been received they will be assigned to the judges for scoring with our shortlist announced in mid-July.

The awards ceremony was last year a sell-out with almost 250 air cargo executives attending.

There is still time to sponsor the Awards. For information on sponsorship opportunities contact Richard Perry at [email protected]
