Prestigious transport award

10 July 2017

Meachers Global Logistics, one of the UK’s leading independent providers of logistics services, is celebrating after winning the Motor Transport Partnership Award; one of the most prestigious accolades in the industry.

Together with Isle of White based Steve Porter Transport, and Solent ferry operator, Red Funnel Ferries, Meachers fought off fellow finalists Alltruck/DX, Arla/Danone, Cemex UK/Continental, DFDS/Magnavale and Parcelforce/Screwfix to take the top spot at the glamorous award ceremony, held in July at the Grosvenor Hotel, London. 

Gary Whittle, commercial director at Meachers, said: "We are so delighted that we have won such a prestigious award in conjunction with Steve Porter Transport and Red Funnel and that this successful partnership has been recognised nationally in this year’s Motor Transport Awards. The Solent Alliance demonstrates a unique way of working. Its success comes from each company bringing a high-level of core expertise to the different aspects of off-shore operations."

The Solent Alliance was formed in 2012 in which this unique partnership has been recognised for. All three partners work together to consolidate the number of inbound and outbound freight deliveries which happen to and from the Isle of White through Southampton.
