Aberdeenshire-based Caledonian Logistics, a member of Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing palletised freight network, has achieved the Road Haulage industry’s prestigious Scottish Top Fleet Livery Company of the Year award at the annual Transport News Scottish Rewards Presentation.
Caledonian Logistics scooped the top prize at the Transport News Scottish Rewards Presentation at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Glasgow.
A full house of road haulage industry guests celebrated the 21st birthday of the annual Transport News Scottish Rewards at a celebratory breakfast which saw presentations to 16 category winners.
The popular breakfast celebration attracted 600 industry guests and filled the banqueting suite of the Crown Plaza Hotel.
Mary Rhodes, guest speaker and TV Presenter at the Scottish Rewards Ceremony, said: “Caledonian Logistics use a highly contrasting yellow and black livery complemented by Scottish flags and a lion rampant. Caledonian Logistics’ circular logos refer directly to the company’s ‘keeping an eye on your freight’ motto.
“This year numbers of nominations were up – again – as were votes cast, and attendees on the night. I’d like to congratulate Caledonian Logistics on winning Top Fleet Livery Company of the Year and I hope to see them again next year!”
Caledonian Logistics specialises in the movement of palletised goods through their membership with Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing palletised freight network. It is the second time the company has entered for such a prestigious award.
Derek Mitchell, Founder of Caledonian Logistics said being crowned Top Fleet Livery Company of the Year was a huge accolade. He comments: “This is a significant industry award and we can’t express how thrilled we are to win it because of what it will mean to our business moving forward. In 2012, we also won Scotland's Top Fleet of the Year Award and we are delighted to add this new accolade to our list of achievements.”
“This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of our team and caps what has been a fantastic year for the company which has grown significantly in such a short space of time. Awards on this scale put into perspective just how far our business has come – even in the last few months.”
“We have a brilliant team of local people and it is down to them that we have achieved this recognition.”
Caledonian Logistics is one of over 100 members in the Palletways UK network. The company’s distribution networks are made up of independent transport companies who share each other’s resources to deliver small consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost effectively than ever before.
