A System Group apprentice working for CEMEX UK is on the road to success after scooping a top prize at the Talent in Logistics Awards, reflecting her commitment to training as she pursues a career as a driver at one of the UK’s leading suppliers of building materials.

Twenty-two-year-old Christina Wilcox, who’s the first female apprentice and driver at CEMEX UK’s Rugby cement plant in the Midlands, won the coveted Apprentice of the Year following her Level 3 Driving Goods Vehicles Apprenticeship, delivered by System Group.

She secured her success after demonstrating her proficiency driving and delivering 44 tonne bulk cement tankers as part of a 90-strong driver workforce.

The Talent in Logistics Awards recognises the skills and achievements of the people that keep the logistics sector, and the country, running, with the winners judged by a panel of industry leading experts.

This includes representatives from the CILT (Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport), RHA (Road Haulage Association), FLTA (Fork Lift Truck Association), Women in Logistics and charity Transaid.

Christina’s achievement capped a night of success for System Group, which was also nominated in the Training Programme of the Year and Grand Finals of RTITB’s Forklift Operator of the Year categories.

Christina is now looking forward to seeing more women drivers coming into the sector as she builds on her achievement through further training and professional development.
