Harbour International Freight has shifted into top gear after picking up a coveted national award from logistics giant Pall-Ex.
The firm presented Harbour, from Manchester, with the Business Development award at a virtual ceremony, as it celebrated overcoming the challenges of 2020 while looking positively towards the future.
The event was a significant celebration for Pall-Ex, providing the pallet network with an opportunity to champion all of its staff and the sector, having worked tirelessly as keyworkers throughout the coronavirus pandemic to keep essential supplies on the move.
The winners of the Pall-Ex awards were all selected due to their growth, compliance, quality distribution, communication and partnership with the network as a whole.
Kevin Buchanan, Group CEO of Pall-Ex Group, comments: “Our network members really have gone the extra mile over the last 12 months, and we are proud of their collective efforts to ensure a high level of service was maintained for all of our customers.
“We are proud to highlight the work of Harbour with our Business Development accolade, which celebrates their dedication to maintaining the highest standards.
“Their hard work and support has underlined Pall-Ex’s leading position within the sector and our commitment to the industry.
“While we are disappointed that we could not celebrate together in person, we are pleased to have this opportunity to thank everyone and reward those who provide exceptional service to our customers.
“Pall-Ex celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2021 and we look forward to marking this milestone and celebrating our collective achievements later this year.”
Steve Swinburn, UK Director at Harbour, comments: “In what has been the most strange and unsettling time in living memory, the team at Harbour have pulled together to get through everything that has been thrown against us.
“I am thrilled that we have been recognised by our peers for our hard work in supporting our customers and increasing new business through the past 12 months, we could not achieve this without the support of our fellow shareholder members and depots.”
