Clare Bottle, newly appointed Chief Executive of the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA), has presented the international Inspiration Award for a woman working outside the UK and NI at the Amazon everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards, held 8th July 2021.

Announcing the winner of the Award, Smita Sawdadkar, Head of Global Design Training Service at EDPM Atkins Limited in Bangalore, Clare said, “UKWA is delighted to support the work of everywoman in showcasing talented women in our industry. The calibre of the finalists this year has been really impressive across the board, our warm congratulations to all the winners and particularly to Smita, who has proved herself an outstanding role model in her community.”

Judges described Smita as an excellent project manager and a huge inspiration for learning, development and mentorship of others across the business.

Now in their 14th year, the awards celebrate the vital contribution women make to transport and logistics, showcasing progression, accomplishments and increasing avenues of opportunity within what has been a traditionally male-dominated industry.
