The hard work, innovative solutions and many successes of the air cargo community were celebrated last night at the Payload Asia Awards 2014, which honoured the very best in the industry at a spectacular gala dinner and awards ceremony held at the Marina Mandarin Hotel in Singapore. Guest of honour at the event was the Director-General of Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), Mr Yap Ong Heng. 

The awards cover some 22 categories of the air cargo sector, as well as three special category Editor’s Choice awards, which together are clearly setting a new benchmark among the existing air cargo industry awards. Payload Asia, the respected industry publication for the air cargo sector, now in its 30th year of publication, has raised the bar even further this year by adding a second parallel set of awards, meaning for each category there are now two awards: the Customer Choice Awards and the Industry Choice Awards. We see this as a way of highlighting two equally important, but slightly different shades of excellence – one based on popular vote and the other on an industry panel assessment.The Customer Choice Awards carry on the previous year’s online voting system by customers and Payload Asia readers, with all results officially audited as testimony to their legitimacy. The Industry Choice Awards on the other hand, are determined by a senior level industry panel drawn from across the industry and assessed via a points system based on the published criteria. Again this process has been audited. A full list of awards and winners can be found below.
