Vehicle firms and operators that have taken action to reduce the noise of freight deliveries are being invited to enter the Quiet Logistics award to have their work recognised.
Sponsored by the Freight Transport Association (FTA), the category is part of the Noise Abatement Society’s (NAS) John Connell Awards, which recognise the importance of sound quality and reward organisations committed to reducing noise pollution.

Natalie Chapman, head of south of England and urban policy, FTA, commented: “The Quiet Logistics award is an invaluable opportunity for any company committed to noise-reduction to showcase its expertise and commitment and set a high standard for the rest of the industry.”
