HLPFI’s readers have spoken! The winners of the Readers’ Vote Awards have been revealed.

The Readers’ Vote Awards were launched as part of the virtual Heavy Lift Awards 2020 to celebrate the photos and videos that best reflect the heavy lift, specialised transport and project logistics sector.

The response to this initiative was fantastic, with some great entries and an overwhelming amount of votes.

See the winning entries below:


Photo of the Year - Airfreight

Winner: Air Canada Cargo

Air Canada pilots and loadmasters in the fully loaded cabin of a Boeing 777-300ER. Removing the seating created an additional 157 cubic metres and 12,000 kilos of cargo capacity on each flight, much of which was used to transport PPE at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. A full cabin can carry up to nine million medical masks.
