Express Parcel Services is celebrating success after picking up an award for its contribution to the logistics industry. The Middleton-based haulier was selected for a Platinum Award by logistics network Pallet-Track following a successful year in business. As postal and delivery strikes continue across the UK, the company recognises the importance of this award.
The accolade was given to the company for its contribution to the Pallet-Track national pallet network, which enables independent hauliers to work together to transport freight around the UK.
To achieve a Platinum Award, members must have achieved 99 per cent or above delivery service for the network for 10 out of 12 months of the year.
The award comes following a challenging few years for the logistics industry, with Express Parcel Services overcoming the pandemic, HGV driver shortage and rising fuel costs to drive its operation to success and on-going growth.
Jamie Taylor, director at Express Parcel Services, said: “We are proud of the whole team’s contribution towards our continued success, which comes at a difficult time for the sector.
“Despite these challenges, our team has gone above and beyond to keep goods on the move.
“We are delighted to receive this award and to be recognised for our contribution to the Pallet-Track network and we look forward to building on this success in the coming year.”
Caroline Green, chief executive of Pallet-Track, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the team and well-deserved recognition for their hard work throughout 2022.
“Our annual awards provide a welcome opportunity to celebrate our collective success and it is a real joy to honour those who have gone the extra mile time and time again.”
From its Grimshaw Lane depot, Express Parcel Services specialises distribution and warehousing, alongside palletised freight distribution.
