We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for excellence in international trade today (Thursday 29th April). One of only 205 organisations in the country to receive the prestigious accolade this year, of which only 122 winners fell into the international trade category, we’ re honoured to receive such recognition, and would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and suppliers for their continued support.

The fourth award we have won in as many years, the Queen’s Award is regarded as one of the most prestigious in business. Winners are presented with the award and a Grant of Appointment by the Lord Lieutenants office in a formal ceremony, as well as invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace. They are also granted permission to fly the Queen’s Award flag at their premises and use the official Queen’s Award emblem on company material for five years.

Director Paul Hull said “We are absolutely delighted to be recognised with such a prestigious award. It is a huge honour, and testament to all the hard work our team puts in on a daily basis.

“It’s been an exceptionally tough year for us all, but this achievement makes it all the more rewarding, it’s just the motivation we need to go even further to help our customers trade internationally.”

Since the company began trading in 1987, we have helped thousands of businesses with their imports and exports, adapting to incorporate changing legislations, rules and regulations. In the last year, with the end of the Brexit transition period, we have expanded our Customs department and are helping hundreds of customers daily to navigate the new declaration requirements.

With this ultimate validation of all the hard work we have put in over the last 34 years, we are even more determined to help businesses find the best possible transport solutions … Ultimately our success lies in the success of our customers.
