TT Club, a leading provider of insurance and risk management services to the international transport and logistics industry, has announced its continued support for the TAPA EMEA Award. The aim is to foster career growth in cargo security and bolster resilience in supply chains.

The award, named the Young Supply Chain Resilience Professional of the Year Award 2024, invites applicants to submit a 1,500-word entry detailing an innovative cargo security or supply chain resilience initiative they have spearheaded or significantly contributed to. Submissions can focus on addressing current security concerns, overcoming cargo loss experiences practically, or tackling emerging security risk trends.

Entries must be submitted by the deadline of April 19, 2024, with the winner notified by May 1. The recipient will have the opportunity to attend TT’s sponsored event at TAPA EMEA’s Annual Conference in Amsterdam on June 12 & 13 to receive the award. Entries will be judged based on the originality, complexity, and success of the solution in improving supply chain resilience.

Mike Yarwood, TT’s Managing Director of Loss Prevention, emphasizes the importance of identifying and rewarding young talent in the industry to foster innovation and collaboration. TT Club is proud to sponsor this award for the second year, following the success of the inaugural award in 2023.

The 2023 Award was won by Sjef Boekestijn of Boekestijn Transport Service for his creation of a new automated security auditing tool. Boekestijn’s innovative solution earned him recognition and opportunities to present his work to industry peers and government officials.

Thorsten Neumann, President & CEO of TAPA EMEA, highlights the significance of nurturing the next generation of leaders in the industry, especially amidst economic, geopolitical, health, and environmental challenges. He urges senior managers to encourage outstanding young professionals to participate in this year’s award.

The partnership between TAPA EMEA and TT Club underscores the industry’s commitment to fostering talent and addressing evolving challenges in supply chain resilience and cargo security.
