Abbey Logistics up for a hat-trick of awards

Abbey Logistics has been shortlisted for three industry awards this year.
This year’s shortlist by the organisers of the Motor Transport Awards includes firms involved in all aspects of the supply chain and showcases the important work carried out by the transport and logistics sector.
Abbey Logistics has been nominated for the partnership of the year award, sponsored by Man Trucks. This is in recognition of its work with Hovis where it worked to modernise the supply chain to create operational visibility, dependability and flexibility in the supply of flour to Hovis’ bakeries, reduced costs, improved working practices and built true engagement from our teams on site and driving our vehicles.
It has also been selected for the team of the year award, sponsored by HIAB, and thirdly it has been selected for the training award, sponsored by Palletforce.
For the training award, Abbey’s driver training department was praised as “a data driven, evidence-based source for continuous improvement across the whole business bringing costs down, improving driver retention, reducing incidents, greater interaction with our customers and generating better engagement with the driver teams. Abbey has invested heavily in its driver training teams”.
“All of us here at Abbey Logistics are thrilled to have been shortlisted in three categories at the 2020 Motor Transport Awards: partnership of the year, team of the year and training award,” it said in an online statement.
“With logistics high on the agenda at the moment and the general public finally getting to see the crucial roles that companies across our sector carry out, it is fitting that this shortlist acknowledges some of the great work that has been done this year.”
It added: “We are delighted that the judges at Motor Transport have recognised the hard work and progress our teams have made this year across the business and are equally pleased to be alongside some fantastic submissions from companies across the sector.”
At the moment, the awards are scheduled for August 27 at Grosvenor House, London.
