Finalists, sponsors and industry figures attended the glittering ceremony to celebrate the 21st Annual Lunch and Awards Ceremony.

In a category sponsored by BBC Chartering, the judges said that the recently-formed Panprojects division of Panalpina World Transport is proving itself through its successful handling of some mega projects involving huge business risks and enormous technical challenges.
