Date: 15 October 2015

  7:30 pm to 11:00 pm–  Awards Ceremony
Venue: Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Singapore

The Payload Asia Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony will be held in Singapore in October 2015. Organised by Payload Asia and supported by Logistics Insight Asia, the annual Awards is a celebration of excellence, highlighting the air cargo supply chain companies that have excelled in the industry – those that have risen above the challenges through market adeptness, innovative products or superior strategy – to make a positive impact on the market and in their own business. This year's award follows the innovative step taken last year by Payload Asia in setting the bar even higher for air cargo industry awards by, for the first time in the industry's history, offering two unique but equally valid views of excellence.

In the vein of the entertainment industry's People's Choice Awards and the Academy Awards, we present the Customer Choice Awards and the Industry Choice Awards – the first determined by popular online voting and the second through ranking by an esteemed industry panel.

"With our first awards programme in the magazine's nearly three-decades of history in 2012, we set a very high standard for transparency and legitimacy in the air cargo awards field," said Payload Asia editor, Donald Urquhart. "This year’s awards programme will continue with the innovative dual-track programme successfully introduced last year. That it met with such an overwhelmingly positive response indicates we are clearly on the right track.

“With tighter, more specific eligibility requirements and voting criteria the Payload Asia Awards will continue to offer the most salient and legitimate awards in the industry and this will only further distance our awards from other more commercially oriented awards programmes in the industry,” said Urquhart.

Established in 1984, Payload Asia continues to be the respected voice of the air freight industry, offering unparalleled news and analysis of industry developments and trends from across the globe with a keen focus on the Asia-Pacific and India-Middle East regions.
