A.D.D. Express Ltd has shifted into top gear after picking up a coveted national award from logistics giant Pall-Ex.
The firm presented A.D.D. Express Ltd from Rochdale, Lancashire and Elland, West Yorkshire, with the Regional Member of the Year (Scotland and North) award at a virtual ceremony, as it celebrated overcoming the challenges of 2020 while looking positively towards the future.
The event was a significant celebration for Pall-Ex, providing the pallet network with an opportunity to champion all of its staff and the sector, having worked tirelessly as keyworkers throughout the coronavirus pandemic to keep essential supplies on the move.
The winners of the Pall-Ex awards were all selected due to their growth, compliance, quality distribution, communication and partnership with the network as a whole.
Kevin Buchanan, Group CEO of Pall-Ex Group, comments: “Our network members really have gone the extra mile over the last 12 months, and we are proud of their collective efforts to ensure a high level of service was maintained for all of our customers.
“We are proud to highlight the work of A.D.D. Express Ltd with our Regional Member of the Year accolade, which celebrates their dedication to maintaining the highest standards.
“Their hard work and support has underlined Pall-Ex’s leading position within the sector and our commitment to the industry.
“While we are disappointed that we could not celebrate together in person, we are pleased to have this opportunity to thank everyone and reward those who provide exceptional service to our customers.
“Pall-Ex celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2021 and we look forward to marking this milestone and celebrating our collective achievements later this year.”
David Fairbrother, Managing Director at A.D.D. Express Ltd comments: “Winning this award is testament to the hard work, dedication and tremendous effort our team have shown during very difficult circumstances in 2020.
“In spite of the pandemic, 2020 has been an amazing year for A.D.D. Express; we invested £1.4m in the refurbishment of our new £8m state of the art distribution facility in Rochdale and relocated our distribution there in October.
“In November we opened and commenced operations of the new Northern Hub for Pall-Ex, supporting the regional members by enabling greater access to the site for those in the North East and optimising the running of Pall-Ex’s Northern Hub for the benefit of the network.
“We are looking forward to celebrating our 30th Anniversary in 2021, hopefully by then we will be able to celebrate in something other than the virtual world.”
