The Institute of Couriers is celebrating 25 years of the National Courier Awards in 2021

Alistair Cochrane - Call for nominations

As Chair of this year’s National Courier Awards I wanted to reach out to you all with a request to recognise all of the great efforts that your team make each and every day by nominating them within the key categories for the 2021 National Courier Awards.


The awards scheme gives each of us the ability to formally recognise the tremendous efforts that our people have made through one of the most difficult years in the Industries history. The courier industry has ensured the Make It Happen attitude was there in swathes, getting through against all the odds, dealing with all the Covid restrictions and in doing so, ensuring that the Country kept supply chains open, working and delivering.

Well, what better way to recognise our unsung heroes than to nominate them in one of the National Courier Award categories? there are many to choose from, so I would encourage all IOC Heads of Industry and associate members to act now and get your people nominated for this year’s awards scheme. The categories are Two Wheel, Four Wheel, Contract Driver, Contract Site, Office, Apprentice of the year, Corporate safety, Road Safety and not forgetting the Military, so you can see there are many to choose from and I’m sure that your employees will fit into one if not more of these sectors.

I have gone onto the portal myself and it’s easy to use and won’t take much time to complete a nomination in one of the categories, so please get your nominations in as early as you can and make this year’s awards one to remember.


The National Courier Awards are hosted by the Institute of Couriers, the government stakeholder for express, final mile, last mile delivery and are judged by an independent panel of operators and sector stakeholders. 2020 brings a focus on key worker, critical infrastructure delivery UK wide, featuring companies national, regional and local, from network to franchise and independent.

The National Courier Awards are open sector-wide to all; they are split in two categories, corporate and individual.
