Haulier of the Year
This, the most coveted award in the road transport industry, is for the outstanding road haulage or 3PL company of the past year. The Haulier of the Year category is open to any company running 11 or more commercial vehicles of 7.5 tonnes GVW or over.
2020 was a tough year for all hauliers, whether their customers were seeing huge spikes in volumes or work dry up almost overnight. But the pandemic saw the transport industry hailed as “unsung heroes” who kept the UK fed and supplied with loo rolls against all odds. We want to hear from these heroes who went the extra mile to make sure that the crisis did not become a drama.
Last year was not all about profit but about delivering when the country was depending on the haulage industry. Adaptability and resilience are two key attributes of road transport and they were in evidence this year more than ever.
To win, you need to show:
- Adaptability and flexibility
- A sound commercial strategy
- Maintaining high operational standards
- A strong staff welfare policy
- Commitment to safety, health, environment and quality
Entries MUST include: three years’ audited accounts; a print out of the DVSA OCRS for every operating site covered by the entry; evidence of high levels of customer satisfaction (include contact details of five customers we can contact for feedback).
