Rapidly growing transport and logistics solutions provider ATL has won two prestigious national awards for customer service and business efficiency in the 2019’s Palletline awards held in the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on July 6th.
ATL’s Midlands Hub based in Foston, Derby, won the Palletline Topliner award for meeting and surpassing targets over a six month period whilst the company’s Head of Distribution Leighton Wood took the individual award for outstanding commitment to the network.
According to ATL Foston Cross Dock Manager, Shaun Deakin, the business has been steadily climbing the ranks following the opening of its ‘state of the art’ Midlands Hub in 2018.
“We have been working hard to achieve our KPI certificates which, because of the commitment of the Foston team and the dedication of all involved, means we continue to succeed in our aim of achieving the best standards in the industry and it’s great to be recognised for this.
“The Topliner award is a measure not just of our efficiency in meeting Palletline’s strict Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), it also means we are achieving the highest levels of efficiency for our customers.”
Head of Distribution Leighton Wood says his individual award for outstanding commitment to the network is a further evidence of ATL’s commitment to Palletline and achieving the best business benchmarks.
“I am overwhelmed to have received this. Whilst it’s called an individual award, in reality it’s down to the support of both my teams in Foston and Carlisle including the office staff, Cross-dock operators and of course our drivers.
“All of these teams are a credit to ATL and I know this is only the start of our success. We’re all looking forward to what the future will bring.”
The Palletline recognition is a great indicator of the progress both the company’s Carlisle and Foston depots are making, Leighton adds.
“Both awards represent how far ATL has come over the past 12 months but more importantly how teamwork can deliver success.
“It is the start of a long term plan, where ATL aspires to regularly set the standards in the distribution industry nationwide and continues to provide outstanding performance for our customers.”
