The Alternative Pallet Company was proud to sponsor the Air Cargo Operator of the year award at Multimodal this year.
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) Multimodal Awards 2017 rewarded the best-in-class across air, road, rail, and maritime services, as well as a young logistics professional, an innovative infrastructure project and environmental best practice. The winners were announced at a gala dinner on 4th April 2017 at the VOX in Birmingham, at the close of the first day of Multimodal 2017, which took place between 4th April and 6th April at the Birmingham NEC.
Virgin Atlantic Cargo was voted ‘Air Cargo Operator of the Year’. Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s tonnage rose to 218,000 tonnes across its global network in 2016. Customer support from the UK was particularly strong throughout the year with volumes from UK to the U.S. alone up 8.4% year-on-year.
Speaking about the evening, Patrick Mulhall (Managing Director) commented “It is fantastic to be associated with such an important event in the logistics calendar and be able to celebrate the best in the sector. The Pallite® brand has such strong affinity to the challenges faced across air freight, so it makes us doubly proud to have sponsored the “Air Cargo Operator” award. Our lightweight yet durable solutions, offer both financial and CO2 savings and it is the intention of our rapidly growing business to continue to work closely with the Multimodal team and all that are associated in the years that follow”.
