Intra-logistics solutions manufacturer Jungheinrich UK won the Warehouse and Materials Handling Award at the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport’s Annual Awards for Excellence ceremony.
The CILT Awards for Excellence recognise outstanding achievements within the transport and logistics industry and took place in London. Over 500 UK logistics and supply chain practitioners attended.
This year, the CILT Awards judges considered Jungheinrich’s work at wine and spirits importer Matthew Clarke’s new facility at the Port of Bristol to be the outstanding materials handling project of 2012.
In making their decision, the judges sought evidence of the use of innovative ideas and good practice as well as success in overcoming technical challenges and other difficulties.
Jungheinrich designed a storage system for Matthew Clark that made optimum use of the available space, and supplied reach trucks with project-specific features and design innovations which allowed the company to improve energy efficiency and maximise productivity within the new store.
CILT’s David Jinks commented: “CILT believes that exceptional performances should be highlighted and applauded and is delighted to recognize Jungheinrich’s outstanding contribution to the efficiency of Matthew Clark’s business.”
Mike Hasson, sales director of Jungheinrich UK, said: ‘It is extremely pleasing to receive this sought-after Award. We feel it is testimony to the dedication and expertise of whole team across our company, who consistently strive to bring business benefits to all Jungheinrich customers.”
Jungheinrich was also recently named Northern Europe Supplier of the Year by supply chain management company CEVA Logistics.
