Priority Freight wins prestigious Queen’s Award for International Trade
Priority Freight, a leading time-critical logistics specialist, has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade 2020. Her Majesty The Queen and Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, recommended that Priority Freight receives the UK’s most significant award for business performance.
The awards celebrate the success of exciting and innovative businesses which are leading the way with pioneering products or services, delivering impressive social mobility programmes or showing their commitment to excellent sustainable development practices.
Neal Williams, Group Managing Director at Priority Freight commented, “We are delighted that the company has been recognised for its achievements in and contributions to international trade. Winning this award is great recognition for the company and a testament to our ongoing commitment to our customers. Our clients know they can trust us to deliver even when the options are limited or time-critical.
“This has been particularly apparent during the COVID-19 crisis where we have been supporting governments and companies to bring PPE in from around the world.”
The Queen’s Award comes after Priority Freight appeared in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league table for the fourth time in the last five years.
The remarkable growth has been during a period of uncertainty for British business due to Brexit, but Priority Freight has continued to adapt to the challenges and expand its skill base and physical presence. The company has also gained AEO certification across its operation. The logistics specialist is one of the few providers to be globally accredited for both Quality Assurance (ISO 9001:2015) and Environmental Management (ISO 14001:2015).
Priority Freight’s highly experienced multilingual logistics specialists are committed to providing the fastest, most cost-effective and reliable solutions, time and time again. With an industry-leading reaction time of under 15 minutes and an on-time delivery rate of 99.6%, it is this dedication that has seen the company achieve the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Neal Williams will be invited to Buckingham Palace where the accolade will be presented by a representative of HM the Queen during a royal reception for The Queen’s Awards winners.
