Tanak Aiming For Pole Position With Palletforce
Palletforce rally driver Ott Tanak is aiming for pole position this weekend as he tackles Rally Poland – round seven of the FIA World Rally Championship. With a renewed sense of confidence at the wheel of his recently-upgraded Ford Fiesta RS WRC, the Estonian rally star has promised a push on the high-speed gravel roads in the north of the country near Mikolajki.
After setting a string of quick times on the last event in Sardinia, Tanak is poised to capitalise on his experience of the Polish stages – after taking overall victory in WRC2 last season. The soft, sandy stages are ultra fast, similar to the roads in Estonia and demand high levels of commitment and confidence.
But it’s a tough event and the first day of action on Friday is tackled without an opportunity for mid-day service – putting even more pressure on Tanak to deliver a flawless performance.
Gala Awards Celebrate Palletforce Stars
It was another glittering night to remember as freight distribution network Palletforce held its annual Gala Awards night in London.
The event, which celebrates the achievements of Palletforce members across the UK, was attended by more than 450 guests, with awards being presented in six different categories.
This year's host at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel Park was TV celebrity Stephen Mulhern, with entertainment provided by soprano Carrie-Ann Williams, and Britain's Got Talent violinist Lettice Rowbotham.
There were three winners in the New Member Award from a seven-strong shortlist: Lockwood Haulage and Nelson Distribution, both from Derbyshire, and Reive & Grossart, who are based in Abington, Lanarkshire.
C & D Southwest, from Chard, Somerset, were recipients of the Sales and Marketing Award for their tremendous efforts in boosting sales through promotion of their own business as well as the Palletforce brand.
Barnsley-based Truswell Haulage won the Members' Service Committee Award, which is given to the member who has demonstrated significant improvement year on year in pursuit of boosting network volumes and delivering quality service.
Palletforce Wins “Gold Oscar” at National Industry Awards
Nationwide distribution network Palletforce has been crowned "Logistics Supplier of the Year" at the prestigious Grocer Gold Awards.
The annual event, organised by industry bible The Grocer and held on June 9 at London's Guildhall, celebrates excellence in all aspects of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).
Palletforce, which operates a network of 87 independent haulage firms from its central Hub in Burton upon Trent, was one of six category finalists, including Bibby Distribution, Coca Cola Enterprises, Fowler Welch, Gist and Samworth Brothers.
In order to be nominated for the Gold award, the company had to demonstrate "tangible and meaningful" improvements across their entire logistics operation in the last 12 months, such as improving efficiency, extending shelf life, delivering better availability or simply saving money.
The award was judged by a panel of FMCG experts and presented on the night by comedian and actor Sanjeev Bhaskar.
Palletforce's chief executive officer Michael Conroy said: "On the back of significant investment in technology and infrastructure to ensure our success story continues, I am delighted that our innovation and quality services have been acknowledged.
"Palletforce is renowned for its pioneering approach to express distribution and this award recognises that we've successfully applied our principles to the FMCG and grocery sector.
"Our express network offers a unique solution for many companies and we've proved already how we can cut costs and make the final stage delivery process much more efficient."
