The industry's top honour – the All India Maritime And Logistics Awards (MALA) – is back with its fifth edition on 12th September 2014 at Palladium Hotel, Mumbai.

MALA has emerged as the authoritative recognition of quality service, best practices and innovation — both among companies and individuals — in the various segments of the maritime and logistics sector. Selected by a jury comprising some of the leading lights of the fraternity, it can truly be said that this is an award of the sector, by the sector and for the sector.

MALA 2014 is thus ready to replicate the success of the previous editions, which generated tremendous enthusiasm in the nomination phase, and excitement and anticipation at the awards ceremony. The main event sees a veritable Who's who of industry stalwarts and professionals, as well as policymakers and regulators past and present turn out in large numbers to applaud and cheer their friends, peers and colleagues.

Self nomination is a must for these awards, whose over 45 categories will be scrutinised by an eminent jury drawn from various segments of the industry. The winners are chosen in a transparent manner based purely on merit i.e. performance & other key parameters during the period April 2013 to March 2014. Nominations are not invited for the individual award categories.

So, join us at the MALA 2014 gala awards night to honour and celebrate excellence.
