ILG is a Double Winner at Annual UKWA Awards

Companies and individuals across the warehousing and third party logistics sectors were recently rewarded for outstanding performance and professionalism at the UKWA Awards 2017.

The United Kingdom Warehousing Association’s Awards are established as symbols of achievement in the 3PL sector and emphasise the importance of logistics within today’s economy, and this year UKWA received a record number of entries in all categories. A total of 10 UKWA Awards were presented by the event’s celebrity host, Gerald Ratner.

UKWA CEO, Peter Ward, commented: “UKWA’s Awards go from strength to strength and the high number and quality of the entries we received underlines the professionalism that runs through the modern logistics industry.”

ILG are delighted to have won the prestigious award of Warehouse Company of the Year. This is a corporate award given to the company showing the highest professional standards of warehousing. The UKWA award acknowledged ILG’s recent growth with three new facilities opened in 2015/16, and our new flagship site which opened in early 2017 to provide another 44,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space.

Along with the Warehouse Company of the Year award, the innovative approach we have taken at our new flagship site this year was recognised as SEC Storage and ILG won the Technical Innovation award for the project. The bespoke multi-level mezzanine system installed by SEC Storage, provides 1,000’s of picking locations and optomised picking efficiency providing capacity for circa 3000 fashion and beauty e commerce orders per shift helping meet the increasingly high expectations and volume demands of our online customers.

Mike Stephenson, Managing Director at ILG said “Our commitment to delivering the best possible service for our customers and supporting their businesses is a fundamental part of ILG. I am delighted for everyone at ILG that our high standards, commitment and hard work has been recognised by this award from the UKWA. Congratulations to all the team at ILG and of course to the team at SEC Group for their Technical Innovation award.”

Over 450 United Kingdom Warehousing Association members and their guests, together with suppliers to the warehousing industry and several leading names from the retail sector, attended the lunch event, which took place at London’s Dorchester Hotel in July.
