The UKIFDA Awards are highly regarded in the fuel distribution industry, and the winners and runners-up of these prestigious awards will be announced at the EXPO 2024 Awards Dinner, sponsored by Mabanaft, on the evening of April 10 at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool.

The shortlists consist of exceptional individuals and companies that have demonstrated remarkable performance over the past year.

UKIFDA Driver of the Year

Three outstanding individuals have been shortlisted for the UKIFDA Driver of the Year 2024 award, sponsored by OAMPS.

The finalists are James Casey (Barton Petroleum), Leah Snow (NWF Fuels Group) and Mircea-Daniel Petreus (Watson Fuels). They were chosen from an especially strong selection of nominees this year.

UKIFDA CEO Ken Cronin comments: “We can’t wait to celebrate these hardworking drivers who make a difference in our communities and are looking forward to sharing their achievements at the prestigious Awards Dinner. We wish all the nominees the best of luck!”

UKIFDA Depot of the Year

The shortlist for the UKIFDA Depot of the Year 2024 award, sponsored by Pen Underwriting, is always eagerly anticipated.

This year’s finalists for the best fuel distribution depot for 2024 are Barton Petroleum (Oakley Depot), Certas Energy (Three Cocks Depot) and Par Petroleum.

In the past 12 months, all depots have been audited and passed by UKIFDA Technical Manager Tony Brown as part of the association’s Depot Certification Scheme and are entered automatically into the depot contest.

Commenting on the high standard of the depots this year, Tony said: “It’s always a tough decision, even choosing the shortlist, but these three distributor depots particularly scored high as exemplary examples of driving the standard of forward. Good luck to all involved.”
