Speedy Freight crowned Road Freight Operator of the Year

The brand won gold at the 2021 Multimodal awards


National same day courier service Speedy Freight has been awarded Road Freight Operator of the Year, sponsored by Maritime, in the 2021 Multimodal Awards.


The brand faced off against several major players in the freight industry, including DSV, Goldstar Transport, LKW Walter, Pentalver, and United World Logistics, before taking the crown on Tuesday night at the Multimodal Awards ceremony, which took place at VOX NEC.


Over the last year, Speedy Freight has grown by 39%, and now provides dedicated same day transport services to every postcode in the UK, including the movement of temperature controlled goods, goods on hangers and two-person white glove delivery services. The brand has over 8,500 customers and supports clients with a wide range of deliveries across the UK and abroad.


What’s more, Speedy Freight has recently launched its first ever EU hub, with a dedicated branch launching in the Alicante region of Spain. And, despite launching only a few months ago, the branch already has a strong foothold in the region, working closely with Spanish manufacturers and suppliers to fuel expansion.


Mike Smith, Speedy Freight Managing Director said: “The entire Speedy Freight team is thrilled with the win, it really is a testament to the work and dedication that goes into maintaining our entire network, at a time when the industry has never faced bigger challenges.


“Over the last year, our drivers have shown incredible resilience, working hard to keep vital supply lines moving in pharmaceuticals, hospitality, retail and construction industries using our dedicated, bespoke logistics solutions.”


For Speedy Freight, no job is too big or too small. With access to a fleet of over 4000 vehicles, including specialist vehicles, the brand can scale up or down to find a logistics solution that works, regardless of the size of the client.


As well as same day, next day, express delivery and multi-drop services, Speedy Freight also has access to a specialist Freight Forward support team. Created as an end-to-end import and export service, the service exists to assist clients with paperwork and customs charges, including transport, as well as supporting with sea and air freight for international cargo.
