Forth Ports sponsors young logistics professional award and celebrates apprentice success across group





In the Year of Young people and during Apprentice Week (5-9th March), Forth Ports are proud to announce their sponsorship of the Young Logistics Professional of the Year award at this year’s Multimodal event in May.

At Forth Ports we invest significantly in our people at every level from apprentice to senior leader, helping us to deliver an excellent service to our customers both now and for the future. We wish everyone the best of luck for the award this year.”
