Representatives of Edwin C Farrall receive The PalletFORCE Depot of the Year ? Robert Bedford Award.
PalletFORCE’s sixth annual Gala Awards Dinner on Saturday 12th April highlighted the strength of the Network, with a record number of Member Depots being recognised for their contribution.

Held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London and attended by 430 Shareholder Members and staff, the event rewarded the Network’s outstanding performers over the past year.

The event’s top prize, PalletFORCE Depot of the Year, was this year renamed as the PalletFORCE Depot of the Year - The Robert Bedford Award in honour of the Bedfords Transport Depot Principal and PalletFORCE Non-Executive Director, who died in 2007.  The award was won by Edwin C Farrall & Sons for the fourth time.

Ge-Be Transport was voted Members’ Depot of the Year, whilst the Sales & Marketing Award was won by Owens Road Services.  The Members Service Committee Award went to White Logistics.

A new category, Networkers of the Year, singled out twelve Member Depots who, in the opinion of the Network, had ‘shown a true Network spirit and had gone that extra mile’ over the past twelve months.  Those chosen were Horley Road Services, UK Freight Masters, Alan Firmin Ltd, Freightforce, Online Roadways, JBT Ltd, White Logistics, Price Express Transport, Beattie Bros Transport, R G Bassett & Sons, John Jempson & Sons Ltd and Abacus Transport

“Our congratulations to all the nominees and winners, PalletFORCE goes from strength to strength, and that’s a direct result of having such a strong membership across the Network,” confirms Trevor Mudd, General Manager Sales and Marketing.  “By creating the new category of ‘Networkers of the Year’, we can ensure that more of our Member Depots than ever before are recognised for their contribution.”
