Kent-based provider of time-critical logistics, Priority Freight, has been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2020.
Her Majesty the Queen and the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, recommended that Priority Freight received the UK’s most significant award for business performance.
The Lord Lieutenant of Kent, Lady Colgrain, presented the award to Neal Williams, group managing director at Priority Freight at a special celebratory ceremony held at the company’s Head Office in Dover. Staff gathered to welcome the esteemed guest who is Her Majesty’s personal representative for Kent.
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. The coveted accolade was announced in 2020 but the awards reception at Buckingham Palace was unable to take place due to the pandemic.
The Queen’s 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. Priority Freight was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which recognises excellence and consistent growth in international sale
