A transport and logistics firm in Kilmarnock, Scotland has received a national award in recognition of its outstanding performance from Palletways UK, Europe’s largest express palletised freight network.

PPS Logistics, a member of the Palletways UK network, received a Platinum Award – the company’s highest accolade – for operational excellence and consistently high service and sales performance in supporting its customers this year.

The Award was presented to PPS Logistics at a Gala Dinner to celebrate Palletways’ 30th anniversary.  To qualify for a Platinum Award, members had to grow their year-on-year volumes across both domestic and European markets, continually achieve outstanding service levels, undertake active engagement with the Armed Forces community, and drive forward sustainable practices. 

Andrew Muir, Managing Director of PPS Logistics, said: “We are a proud member of the Palletways UK network and are grateful to be one of just ten Platinum Club award winners this year. This accolade reflects not just our commitment to delivering the highest service and operations standards, but also the hard work of the entire PPS family. We also signed the Armed Forces Covenant this year which is something we are thrilled to be a part of as a large proportion of our workforce is made up of veterans, those who have served overseas and those who are currently supporting the armed forces and the wider forces community.”

Warwick Trimble, Network Director at Palletways UK, said: “It is a delight to present PPS, one of top performing UK members with this Platinum Award and we thank them for their ongoing efforts in driving the network forwards. PPS Logistics is recognised for its exceptional service levels and has put a significant emphasis on growth over the past 12 months. PPS is also actively engaging with the armed forces community.”

Supporting ex-servicemen and women through employment is close to Palletways’ heart, having pledged its support to the Armed Forces Covenant in January of 2022, and achieving the Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award eighteen months later.

Warwick continues: “As a business, our focus is on growing our pallet volumes and providing our customers with a service that’s fast, efficient and reliable. Our Platinum Awards highlight the dedication of our members and recognise their contribution towards achieving our goals throughout the year.”
