Walkers Transport has been recognised by Palletways, Europe's largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network, for its outstanding sales performance and the role it has played in the expansion of Palletways this year.
Walkers Transport is one of more than 110 members that form the UK Palletways network. The company, which operates out of Manchester and Leeds, was announced as the Midlands Region Winner in Palletways 2017 Sales Awards at its National Sales Conference in November. The Award marks twelve months of outstanding achievement in sales and marketing by Walkers Transport, which joined the Palletways network over 15 years ago.
