Third award win for Merseyside transport company

Weeks after winning two coveted trophies – the Palletways National Sales Award and the Palletways National Marketing Award – Sovereign Transport in Liverpool has scooped a third at this year’s Knowsley Business Awards.


The Knowsley Business Awards, which took place at the Grand Marquee in the grounds of Knowsley Safari Park, celebrates the creativity, ingenuity and commitment of the individuals and organisations that are driving forward Knowsley’s economic success. Sovereign Transport was announced as the winner of the Transport and Logistics Business of the Year category in recognition of its significant growth over the last two years, the company’s investment in staff training, fleet and new facilities along with its commitment to employ apprentices.

Rachael Forshaw, commercial director at Sovereign Transport, which is member of Palletways, the largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network, said: “What a fantastic way to end 2017! This recognition is a huge boost to our hard-working team. It also sends out a strong signal to our competitors about our strength and capabilities in logistics.”

Sovereign Transport is one of over 110 independent transport providers that are part of the Palletways UK network. They benefit from shared expertise and resources from within the group to deliver consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost effectively than ever before. The Palletways Group comprises 400 depots and 14 hub operations, through which it provides collection and distribution services across 20 European countries, including the UK.
