Allen Logistics Voted Haulier of the Year

14 September 2015

Allen Logistics has been recognised at the annual Export & Freight Transport & Logistics Awards for its efficient and well respected customer service and good business practice.

 

The company was presented with the much coveted Haulier of the Year award, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, at a glittering ceremony at the Ramada Hotel in Belfast. Itís the second time the company has won the award.

 

Two years away from completing a successful half century in business, Allen Logistics, based in Moira, just off the M1 motorway, has seen off downturns and recessions along the way to become one of Northern Irelandís most progressive operators, with its distinctive liveried trucks a common sight on roads across Ireland and the UK.

 

It has invested significantly in both its fleet and warehousing facilities and more recently diversified its operation by successfully entering into the specialist market of transporting hazardous freight.

 

The company has come a long way since it was originally established back in 1967 by Linden Allen. Today, it operates from a four acre site that includes more than 50,000 sq ft of warehousing space, with a purpose built covered drive through transit hub that eliminates the time consuming practice of handling freight in the open yard, a fully equipped service/MOT centre and a modern office block.

 

The annual Transport & Logistics awards, organised by the Hillsborough based publishers of Export & Freight magazine, 4SM (NI) Ltd., is now widely regarded as the premier event in the Irish Transport & Logistics calendar, attracting entries, support and sponsorship from all the leading players in the industry
