STAFF at a Winsford logistics company is celebrating after scooping a prestigious accolade.

Cammack Transport has received a Platinum Club award from Imperial’s Palletways in recognition of their operational excellence.

The recognition follows a challenging and unprecedented few months for the firm.

The team has been recognised after demonstrating their ability to deliver the highest level of service to the network and their customers throughout the previous year.

Managing director Jo Cammack said: “The platinum award recognises the very best companies within Palletways’ UK network and is only presented to those members that excel in the service delivery field.

"Following a tough few months, this award comes as welcome news to our 24-strong team, and I’m pleased their hard work has received the recognition it rightly deserves.”
