The company has been shortlisted for
the major award in the 34th Motor Transport Awards – the road transport
The Haulier of the Year is the most coveted industry award of the year and recognises the most outstanding transport company. The flagship annual awards will be staged in November at The Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
The company will join two other finalists for the top award which was judged by an independent panel of experts drawn from the industry. Finalists’ submissions were assessed for legal compliance, business success, high operational standards, staff development, health and safety; environment and quality initiatives.
During the Covid-19 crisis, the team at Boughey has been managing unprecedented demand to keep food supplies moving around the country, with an additional 50 truck-loads leaving its base each day.
This month, the company will open a
new state-of-the-art warehouse in Crewe which will increase our overall storage
capacity from 100,000 to 137,000 pallet spaces.
This is the first time that Boughey has entered the Motor Transport Awards and Managing Director Keith Forster said that being on the shortlist is all about the dedication of the company’s employees: “We are all thrilled to have made the shortlist of what is most definitely the ultimate accolade in our industry. In spite of over 55 years of trading, we have been somewhat under the radar in terms of our success.
“While we are very proud of our
business success, the high standards we operate across our company and the long-standing
relationships we have with our customers, being shortlisted is all about the
great team of people who work here. This
includes drivers, warehouse operatives and the behind-the-scenes teams who keep
everything moving 24/7.
“We will all be keeping our
fingers-crossed for good news when the awards ceremony takes place in November.”
