Organised by magazine publisher ITP Business, the annual Supply Chain and Transport Awards (SCATA) has established itself as the ultimate celebration of the Middle East logistics industry’s achievements over the past 12 months.
The inaugural SCATA event, which took place in 2007, proved a monumental success and leveraged the breadth and experience of ITP’s market leading transportation magazines – including Logistics Middle East, ArabianSupplyChain.com and Aviation Business.
Six years later, and the leading players from the Middle East logistics industry are preparing to converge in Dubai once again for the latest SCATA ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at a five-star hotel in May 2013.
“The market opportunity in the Arabian Peninsula, together with the fierce competition to succeed in the lucrative supply chain and transportation sector, means the Middle East is producing some of the most impressive players in the global logistics industry,” comments Walid Akawi, CEO of ITP Publishing Group.
“The SCATA awards will make a welcome return in 2013 to recognise those regional and international companies that stand out from this exalted crowd. The nominees will once again include a combination of regional and international players that have gone above and beyond in terms of their industry contribution,” he adds.
The SCATA 2013 ceremony will include 16 categories in total, covering the logistics, sea freight and air cargo sectors. Nominations are being invited online and will be assessed by a prestigious panel of experts, selected from within the Middle East logistics industry.
