Ketra is a Platinum Performer for Palletways UK

A transport and logistics firm in Thamesmead has received a national award in recognition of its outstanding performance from Palletways UK, Europe’s largest express palletised freight network.

Ketra Logistics, a member of the Palletways UK network, received a Platinum Award – the company’s highest accolade – for operational excellence and consistently high service and sales performance within the network and to support its customers this year.

The Award was presented to Ketra at a Gala Dinner to celebrate Palletways’ 30th anniversary.  To qualify for a Platinum Award, members had to grow their year-on-year volumes across both domestic and European markets, continually achieve outstanding service levels, undertake active engagement with the Armed Forces community, and drive forward sustainable practices.
Martyn Young, Managing Director of Ketra, said: ”This is the highest standard of the whole pallet network sector and to achieve it is testament to the hard work and performance of all our team members at Ketra.”

Warwick Trimble, Network Director at Palletways UK, adds: “It’s a delight to present Ketra, one of top performing UK members with this Platinum Award and we thank them for their ongoing efforts in driving the network forwards over the past twelve months, and the past decade in fact. Ketra signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant earlier this year. Across the team – from internal customer service and operational staff behind the scenes, to drivers on the front line, Ketra provides customers with a personalised service.”

Supporting ex-servicemen and women through employment is close to Palletways’ heart, having pledged its support to the Armed Forces Covenant in January of 2022, and achieving the Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award eighteen months later.

Warwick continues: “As a business, our focus is on growing our pallet volumes and providing our customers with a service that’s fast, efficient and reliable. Our Platinum Awards highlight the dedication of our members and recognise their contribution towards achieving our goals throughout the year.”
