Abbey Logistics Magazine Spring Edition 2021

ABBEY SHORTLISTED FOR THREE MOTOR TRANSPORT AWARDS The biggest and best awards show in our industry is back! The famous Motor Transport Awards was held in early September as the industry came together to celebrate its collective achievements over the past year.

THE PARTNERSHIP AWARD Our work with Tarmac in Scotland was shortlisted for an award due to the way in which both companies’ teams have worked in partnership to deliver excellent service and safety levels and overcome

being a finalist at the MotorTransport Awards is an achievement in itself. We are still keen to celebrate this and acknowledge that it is thanks to the dedication and skill of our teams across the business that our peers recognised our work and selected us as finalists amongst some very strong competition. The role logistics and transport play in keeping our economy moving, innovating and raising standards is rightly celebrated and rewarded at the Motor Transport Awards and we are delighted that the work our teams do across the group was recognised once again at the show.

T he event was celebrating its 35th year as the benchmark for excellence among UK road transport fleet operators, vehicle manufacturers and other sector specialists, and was once again back as a huge live event at Grosvenor House in London. Everyone at Abbey was thrilled to hear that we were shortlisted for three awards this year, and we were especially proud that two of these nominations are for collaborative work with our customers. The third nomination was forthe biggest award of the event, Haulier of the Year. Unfortunately, this year, we were pipped at the post and didn’t collect the winning trophy, but despite this,

challenges together on this important contract.

TEAM OF THE YEAR This nomination relates to the way in which the Abbey and ADM teams have worked together in London to help improve service levels and collaboration. ADM is a long- standing customer of Abbey’s but this year’s performance raised the game due to the excellent teamwork which has seen the two companies come together as one collaborative unit for the benefit of ADM’s customers. We have so many success stories across the group that are worthy of celebrating and we will be back next year to show the industry what we have achieved and hopefully go one better.

The awards we were shortlisted for were:

HAULIER OF THE YEAR Due to our outstanding performance during the pandemic, Abbey was shortlisted for the most

coveted award of them all and the ultimate mark of excellence in road freight transport.
