Palletways, Europe's largest and fastest-growing express palletised freight network, has presented a number of its UK members with service and sales awards – in recognition of their performance excellence throughout 2018.
The awards, presented at the company’s recent Sales and Marketing Conference in Burton upon Trent, mark twelve months of outstanding achievement in service and sales and highlight the contribution that Palletways’ members have made towards strengthening the network.
The network is renowned for regularly recognising the successes of its members throughout the year. A notable example of this is the company’s prestigious Platinum Awards, which have been presented for the past seven years.
However, as Mike Harrison, Operations Director, and Sue Nicholson, Head of Commercial, took to the stage, they announced that change was afoot – and the Platinum Award scheme was to be relaunched, providing Palletways’ members with a year-long opportunity to bag the network’s most coveted awards.
