UKIFDA announces final shortlist for EXPO 2024 Awards

The UKIFDA Awards are highly regarded in the fuel distribution industry. 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.

Close contest

The shortlist for the UKIFDA Green Award 2024, sponsored by Oilshield, has been revealed, signalling the hunt for the liquid fuel distribution industry’s ‘green leader’ is almost over.

This year’s Green Award will be a tight-run contest between finalists Certa and Eliminox.

UKIFDA CEO Ken Cronin said: “These two entries stood out from the rest. We’ve reviewed applications from businesses of all sizes, learning about everything from innovative carbon emission-reducing technologies as well as alternative fuels and additives, to companies implementing strategies to minimise harm to the environment. It’s been an interesting process.

Best of luck to the two finalists from all of us at UKIFDA!”


Announcing the shortlist for the Young Person of the Year 2024 Award, sponsored by Just Tankers, UKIFDA reveals the three young people who are in the final running for the accolade.

The shortlist includes Jack Popplewell (Dice Fuels), Harry Boxall (NWF Fuels) and James Pulling (WCF Chandlers).

Commenting on the shortlist, Ken Cronin said: “The search for the liquid fuel distribution industry’s emerging talent has been fascinating. There are some exceptional young people in the final line-up. We look forward to announcing the winner on the night!”

One to watch

The shortlist for the UKIFDA Innovation Award 2024, sponsored by Fuel Oil News, has been announced, and it includes three industry trailblazers – Fuel Additive Science Technologies, Magnus Monitors and MechTronic.

“For those on the lookout for industry innovation, this is one of the awards to watch,” adds Ken Cronin.

Innovation in liquid fuel distribution is driving the sector forward, and we look forward to sharing more on the night about these three pioneering businesses.”
