The Queen’s Award for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious Business Awards, recognising and celebrating Business excellence across the United Kingdom.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the UK’s highest accolade in Business, recognising industry leading excellence across the UK.  Winning Organisations, such as ourselves, must demonstrate consistently outstanding results in International Operations, and the highest calibre in Customer Service and Staff Engagement.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise, now The King’s Awards for Enterprise are for outstanding achievement by UK Businesses in the categories of:
– Innovation
– International Trade
– Sustainable Development
– Promoting Opportunity Through Social Mobility

Chosen after a rigorous selection process conducted by the Prime Minister’s Office, and ultimately approved by Her Majesty the Queen. Announced every year on 21st April, Her Majesty the Queen’s Birthday, this prestigious Award is won by only a small number of Businesses in the UK each year. The Award is recognised Internationally as a seal of superior quality and trustworthiness.

Over the years we have expanded our services from Freight Forwarding to providing total transport solutions, including Worldwide Road, Sea and Air Freight options, Export Documentation and Customs Clearances, and comprehensive Cargo Insurance.


“We are honoured to have been awarded with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Excellence in International Trade.  We are one of only 205 organisations nationally to be recognised with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise, with a 708% increase in International sales over the six year qualifying period.

The Queen’s Award is such a prestigious Award. It’s 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.

Sometimes we don’t shout loud enough about the talent and innovation present in the United Kingdom, especially The Black Country – it’s time to put modesty aside and just go for it.”

KMB Director Paul Hull


During our Award Ceremony, Lord-Lieutenant Crabtree spoke of the need for the West Midlands to get better at promoting itself on a Global Scale; to “write our own story” rather than have others tell it for us.

According to Lord-Lieutenant Crabtree, we have 4.2% of the nation’s population living here in the West Midlands and should therefore be winning around twelve Awards every year. In 2021, the West Midlands won just two.

That’s one of several reasons why our Award is so significant for our County.

What you’ve achieved is taking this area all over the world,” said Lord-Lieutenant Crabtree, who wished us many Congratulations on behalf of the Queen.
