“To receive the Multimodal Personality of the Year Award is a real honour,” said Nixon.

“Jeremy Nixon oversaw the merger of three companies to create ONE, which has now become one of the biggest names in container shipping, and the award recognises his significant contributions to the industry,” said Rob Jervis, Logistics Portfolio Director, Clarion Events.
