The National Courier Awards panel of judges has sat.

There is no single winner of a National Courier Award; each year the number varies, but nominations were the biggest ever for this year's 25th anniversary awards.

Shortlist groups were big. Votes for 2021 split the shortlisters in two. It’s a bumper year; corporate awards come first for road safety, clean air and step change.

Votes off the judges have delivered 8 awards for road and 9 for office.

The full Nominations short-list for the 25th National Courier Awards follows...

2020's National Courier Awards left the traditional IoD platform in Pall Mall and went on the road!

With full social distancing, the IOC completed the final mile of recognition for the 2020 Covid year winners by delivering the Silver C courier awards to the individuals in their workplaces, where their colleagues rattled their clappers in recognition of best-of-the-best express delivery.

There was a broadcast quality capture of the National Courier Awards in 2020; just like the real thing, individual and corporate winners were a secret until the evening of Oct 20th 2020.
