Lockwood’s Wins National Logistics Award As Brand Ambassador

Posted on: December 30th, 2021 by Gemma Ryan

Lockwood’s has won a prestigious national transport award for its exceptional efforts to keep the country moving during a year in which the nation’s supply chains were tested.

Lockwood’s was named as a Brand Ambassador at the Palletforce Gala Awards for its work in supporting the national supply chain effort during a challenging year for many transport and logistics companies.

Palletforce is the UK’s premier express freight distribution network – handling more than 45 million pallets – and runs a network of more than 100 member companies across the UK and Europe. Palletforce members have helped to deliver medical supplies, vital equipment and everyday essentials during the pandemic and have helped keep shelves stocked in stores and supermarkets.

Lockwood’s was selected as a Brand Ambassador because of the quality of its work over the past year. The company impressed the judges and Palletforce management with its commitment and dedication to its customers – delivering an exceptional distribution service in the face of tough operational challenges.

At the awards ceremony, which this year was held virtually, Palletforce chief operating officer Mark Tapper said: “This award is based on nominations from the Palletforce team and recognises members who have gone the extra mile to support and promote the network during the year.

“Despite the challenges, Palletforce and its entire membership have been equal to the task. Lockwood’s stands out as having put in extra effort and impressed our management.”

Lockwood’s is based at Ambergate and operates a fleet of 90 vehicles and employs 303 staff.

Keith Allsop Lockwood’s transport and warehouse director said the company was delighted that the hard work of its staff had been rewarded.

He said: “This honour is a tribute to all of our dedicated employees, from the drivers to office staff, who have gone above and beyond in the past year to ensure that we deliver a consistently high level of performance for our customers. “Palletforce is the UK’s premier distribution network and to receive recognition from them is a vindication of all the efforts that our workers have put in in the past year to ensure vital deliveries are always made efficiently and on time.”
