Excellence in logistics awarded

MasterDrive was a guest and sponsor of the recent Logistics Achiever Awards (LAA), an annual ceremony which has been rewarding excellence in logistics and supply chain management for the last 29 years. Businesses receive awards for outstanding achievements and innovation that is creating market advantage today. This creates a strong, sustainable foundation into the future.


The entries this year were of exceptionally high quality. The caliber of the entries was so high that there were no bronze entries. Organisers of the event hope that the awards will serve as strong motivation for local supply chain executives to meet world-class standards.

The managing director of MasterDrive, Eugene Herbert, says the company is happy to be part of an event which plays an integral role in encouraging high standards in the industry. “Strong, internationally comparable supply chains are the basis on which strong economies will be built. Road usage is also a huge factor which most supply chain managers need to consider and invest in to reach these standards.

“Thus we support the efforts made by LAA organisers and the companies which get involved. Each organisation shows their commitment to reach the highest standards. We would like to continue showing our support for this worthy cause. Congratulations to those who were recognised and we encourage you to continue reaching these standards,” says Herbert.
