29 Nov 2021 A night of celebration as annual Pallet-Track Shareholder Gala returns
The annual Pallet-Track Shareholder Gala returned with a bang at the weekend, with a fantastic night marking the network’s outstanding performance in unprecedented times.
The glittering awards ceremony took place on Saturday, November 27 at a new venue, the De Vere Cotswolds Water Park, when members came together to mark an exceptional year of business.
In a venue decked out in more than 1,500m of festive fairy lights, members enjoyed an evening’s entertainment presented by Wynne Evans of ‘Go Compare’ fame, plus a stand-up set from legendary comedian Jimmy Carr.
Thanks to the generosity of everyone in attendance, more than £4,000 was raised in cash and pledges for our nominated charity, St Basils, which provides help for young people who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness.
Our regional winners on the night were:
- South West: RR Transport Ltd
- Wales and the West: Woodside Distribution Ltd
- South East: Pallet-Track Logistics Ltd
- Central and the East: Aztek Logistics Ltd
- Scotland and the North: Harrison Solway Logistics Ltd
- Best Delivery Depot – RR Transport Ltd
- Members’ Depot of the Year – RR Transport
In a turbulent and volatile situation in 2021, some members have gone above and beyond to support our network by lending drivers and vehicles. With this in mind, special mentions went to:
- Daily Shipping
- Mike Garbutt Transport
- Sheldon Clayton Logistics
- Downes Transport
- Sovereign Transport
- Fresh Freight
- Hicks Logistics
And finally, no fewer than 13 members took home a Platinum Award. This is the true sign of operational excellence, as members must have achieved 99 per cent or above delivery service for the network for 10 out of 12 months of the year.
It’s a tremendous feat in such a difficult year, giving impeccable service to the network and their fellow member shareholders. It is incredibly impressive for any member to win this award, so the fact that we have 13 winners is quite frankly amazing!
