Af­ter the grand suc­cess of the first edi­tion in Goa, In­dia Cargo Awards trav­elled to the pink city of In­dia to cel­e­brate the achiev­ers from North and East re­gions. The awards were held at Crowne Plaza Tonk Road Jaipur on De­cem­ber 9, 2015. The evening was graced by Mo­han Lal Gupta, First Mayor of Jaipur and cur­rent MLA of Jaipur city and Dr Tanushree Pandey, Mrs In­dia 2015.

The black tie event brought to­gether the en­tire freight for­ward­ing com­mu­nity for the glit­ter­ing awards cer­e­mony. The awards were pre­sented for var­i­ous cargo and lo­gis­tics seg­ments such as air, sur­face, Gen­eral Sales Agents (GSA), 3PL ground han­dling, cus­tom house agents, to name a few. The ob­jec­tive of the first-of-its-kind cargo awards is to recog­nise the tal­ent of peo­ple who make up this in­dus­try.

Ac­knowl­edg­ing the en­deav­our of the or­gan­is­ers, Gupta said, “Jaipur is now be­com­ing a big busi­ness cen­tre with in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion in full swing. Hand­i­crafts and man­u­fac­tur­ing are grow­ing here. It is also an IT hub. The pos­si­bil­i­ties for lo­gis­tics are very high in Jaipur.”

Talk­ing at the event, SL Sharma, Im­me­di­ate Past Pres­i­dent, Air Cargo Agents As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dia (ACAAI) said, “The best part is that now cargo is get­ting recog­ni­tion and I would like to con­grat­u­late the team from DDP for hon­our­ing the achiev­ers.”

Cheer­ful about the in­dus­try’s re­ac­tion to the award, San­Jeet, Di­rec­tor, DDP Group said, “There are many awards on the na­tional and global lev­els but the real he­roes come from the dif­fer­ent re­gions and far cor­ners of the coun­try. Tonight we are salut­ing the achiev­ers. To choose the stal­warts of this dy­namic in­dus­try was not an easy job. To en­sure that the awards are un­bi­ased, we have adopted an on­line vot­ing sys­tem. This gives the in­dus­try an op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate the award, choose and even nom­i­nate and they can vote for them­selves too. The nom­i­na­tions were re­ceived from 46 cat­e­gories and three new cat­e­gories were added by the in­dus­try. I am over­whelmed to see a whop­ping 1,85,000 votes from all over the world in­clud­ing the UK, US and Aus­tralia to name a few coun­tries.”
