Nominations open for 32nd AFIAs

Nominations are now being accepted for the 32nd Australian Freight Industry Awards (AFIAs), after last year’s event which was cancelled due to Covid-19.

Chairman Peter Anderson said it was a pleasure to celebrate the return of the event.

“After a challenging couple of years for our industry and nation, we look forward to coming together to celebrate everything great about Australia and the freight industry that keeps it moving,” he said.

“Having had to make the difficult decision to cancel last year’s event, it is fantastic to not only be able to hold this prestigious event, but to be doing so in person – all under the same roof.”

Nominations are open for the following categories:

  • Female Leadership Award
  • Investment in People Award
  • Application of Technology Award
  • Young Achiever Award
  • Best Practice Safety Award
  • Sustainable Environment Award

“The last time we held the AFIAs in 2020, we received a record number of entries,” he said. “Given how hard our industry has been working since then, and the innovation on display, there are no doubt even more fantastic achievements worthy of celebrating this year.”

Criteria for the awards can be reviewed here and nominations can be submitted online at by Monday, 15 August.
