AXL 40 Under 40 celebrates the young professionals who have either achieved greatness already or have the potential to become the next generation of industry leaders. Breakbulk, heavy lift and RO-RO pros are encouraged to nominate themselves, their colleagues and their peers if they are under the age of 40 and have made, or will make, significant contributions to the sector. Nominations will be open throughout the summer, then a panel of industry experts will decide who will make AXL’s official 40 Under 40. Winners will receive VIP status at AntwerpXL in November, where a special drinks reception and networking event will be held in their honour. Margaret Dunn, Portfolio Director at AXL, says, “AXL is a forward-looking event, showcasing the latest innovations and new ideas that will help the industry navigate the challenges of tomorrow. But tech and talk mean nothing without people to lead the industry. The continued success of the sector is dependent on the next generation of talented professionals. “AXL 40 Under 40 is designed to identify and celebrate the young professionals who are sure to steer the ship from critical leadership roles in the near future“. When asked to give advice to the next generation of industry professionals, one of last year’s winners, Samuel Bersey, Business Development & Operational Manager at Lubbers Logistics Group, said, “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” The competition is open to any breakbulk or heavy lift professional who is under the age of 40 on 10 October 2024. The judges are simply looking for professionals who, thanks to their excellence and commitment, are making a real difference to their organisation or to the wider industry.
