Logistics Leaders Legend
27th October 2023
John Harvey CBE was presented with the 2023 Logistic Leaders Network Lifetime Achievement Award to recognise his exceptional leadership in the industry.
Celebrating forward thinking business leaders
The awards ceremony was held on the 24th October at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon, and are designed to recognise and celebrate the massive shift in the importance of logistics leaders in the supply chain. All the awards are voted on by the members of the Logistics Leaders Network, who are amongst 'the best of the best' in the logistics industry.
"It's a great honour and privilege to receive his Lifetime Achievement Award, and to read the many comments posted on social media following the award ceremony. Logistics is only typically recognised when something goes wrong, and hits the news in spectacular style. It's testimony to the industry that such occasions are extremely rare, and this is due to the quality of leaders within our sector. Leaders who operate in what I believe to be the most challenging business environments, but who everyday deliver exceptional service. To receive this award from my peers in recognition of my leadership within the sector is extremely humbling and makes me incredibly proud."
