Wolverhampton-based Pallet-Track has continued its winning year by scooping the Growth Award at the 2018 The Logistics Awards.
The pallet network beat six other companies to the accolade at the glittering award ceremony organised by SHD Logistics magazine at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London on Thursday 20 September.
The judges recognised the strength of Pallet-Track’s business model, innovative tracking solution and focus on customer care which was clearly demonstrated through the growth of its membership and outstanding financial performance – delivering double digit growth for more than a decade.
The panel also felt Pallet-Track continues to execute a unique business strategy more consistently and reliably than its competitors, resulting in low operational risk and costs and increased revenues.
The multi-award-winning logistics company has enjoyed a record-breaking 12 months of success which started when it collected two prizes at the Midlands Business Awards, in recognition of its quality service and innovation.
In May the company was once again identified as one of the London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Europe,’ and became one of only six companies nationally recognised as such for two consecutive years.
The 14-year-old company also picked up the Delivery and Logistics Company of the Year and the Operational Excellence awards at the UK Business Awards at Wembley Stadium followed by an appearance in the top 20 fastest growing companies in the UK in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100.
Back in June and on home turf, Pallet-Track secured the Wolverhampton Express & Star Business of the Year Award.
Lisa Burrows, operations director for Pallet-Track, who collected the Logistics Award on the night, said: “We are thrilled to have won this accolade in what has been a record-breaking year for us as a business. But, as we all know, success like this doesn’t happen by accident – it’s all down to a culture of great teamwork, which fosters loyalty among our dedicated staff.”
The £83 million turnover business, which comprises 90 member companies, has handled in excess of 22 million pallets and has never lost a single consignment at its 267,000 sq ft Wolverhampton hub or at its two newer hubs near Wigan, Greater Manchester, and Welwyn Garden City, servicing the capital.
