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 receive the UK’s most significant award for business performance.

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 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).

Neal Williams will be invited to Buckingham Palace where the accolade will be presented by HM the Queen during a royal reception for The Queen’s Awards winners.
