Multi-award-winning London logistics firm ELB Partners has collected two further prizes for its contribution to the logistics industry.
The Croydon-based haulier picked up the Shareholders’ Members Service Quality Award and Platinum Award from Pallet-Track at an event hosted by TV favourite and DJ Vernon Kay.
The award was for the business’ contribution to the national Pallet-Track network, which enables independent hauliers to work together to transport freight efficiently around the UK.
The ELB team picked up the accolade at Pallet-Track’s 20th anniversary shareholder gala, which was held at the De Vere Beaumont Estate in Windsor.
The Shareholders’ Members Service Quality Award prize is voted for by fellow shareholders, while the Platinum Award was given to 36 shareholders to mark their outstanding contribution to the network over the last 20 years.
Peter Eason, managing director of ELB Partners, said: “We are so pleased to be recognised for our contribution to Pallet-Track and we are proud of our team’s hard work and continued success.
“As an industry, we have faced real challenges in recent years, so it is fantastic to receive recognition and to have an opportunity to celebrate our collective achievements.
“We look forward to building on our success in the year ahead.”
Stuart Godman, chief executive of Pallet-Track, said: “Congratulations to ELB on their award, which is well deserved, and their ongoing contribution to the Pallet-Track network.
“Our shareholder gala provides a welcome opportunity to celebrate our network members who have gone the extra mile time and again during the last 20 years.”
ELB was established in 1970 as a three-person partnership and Peter bought the business from his father George in 1985. It now employs around 60 staff and moved to a new 60,000 sq. ft headquarters in Beddington Farm Road in 2021.
