TLISC chief executive Robert Adams.
Logistics leaders were recognised at the annual Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC) awards for excellence held in Melbourne recently.
The awards celebrate exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions made by organisations in training and workforce development across the transport and logistics industry.
CEO Robert Adams says the event drew an even greater number of nominations than in its inaugural year.
"It was encouraging to see many of last year's winners and highly commended entries wanting to be involved again. Equally, attracting new interest from large and small organisations across the country means we had a very strong field."
One notable change from the previous event was the inclusion of a new category, Trainee of the Year, which was won by Carl Riseley.
The 2014 Innovation and Excellence in Workforce Development Award recognised enterprises who had successfully implemented whole of business solutions to upskill and train staff through the use of TLISC training packages. Each of the six transport and logistics sectors had a separate award.
The winners were:
- Veolia Environmental Services (Road Transport)
- Toll Customised Solutions (Logistics and Warehousing)
- Regional Express (Aviation)
- John Holland Rail (Rail)
- Maritime Employees Training Ltd (Maritime)
- Qube Ports & Bulk (Ports)
John Holland Rail was awarded the 2014 Return on Investment in Skills Award, while the Australian Maritime College earned the 2014 Excellence in Industry Promotion Award for its project in the Torres Strait.
Tasmanian-based De Bruyn's Transport won the 2014 Chairman's Award.
