Birmingham-based Exchange member, Simpex Express is celebrating having scooped a national industry award that recognises its achievements over the past twelve months. Simpex Express, a leading provider of international express and specialised transport, won the European Member of the Year category at the Transport Awards for the second year running.
Simpex Express’ Kate Taylor and Debbie Brown were presented with the award by Phil Simpson from Freightlink at the annual ceremony that took place at St John’s Hotel in Solihull, West Midlands, in front of more than 300 industry leaders and professionals from across the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe. The company was one of four winners that were nominated and voted for by more than 3,500 members of Courier Exchange and Haulage Exchange in recognition of their major success and best practice in terms of customer service, operational performance and delivery.
