Entries for the Forklift Operator of the Year and LGV Driver of the Year are now open and organisers are urging businesses to enter their skilled employees.

"Encouraging members of your workforce to take part in competitions and awards is a great way to show them how much you value their contribution and recognise their knowledge and talent," says Ruth Edwards for Talent in Logistics. "Our competitions have also proved to be an incredibly motivating and enjoyable experience for those involved, which can in turn increase engagement and loyalty."

The first stage in both competitions is an online test, which must be completed by April 3. The best performing entrants will be announced on April 15 and finalists will be invited to demonstrate their talent in live practical tests that take place during June, with the final shortlist announced on June 30.

Winners of both competitions will be awarded their prize at the Talent in Logistics Awards on October 1 at the Concorde Conference Centre in Manchester.

The practical part of the Forklift Operator of the Year competition will take the form of a roadshow, with three regional heats across the UK throughout June. At each event, a series of interactive challenges will require operators to demonstrate both technical knowledge and practical lift truck operation. Finalists will complete all tests using a UniCarriers TX3 electric counterbalance truck.
