Taf Evans, depot principal at PD Bannister, said: “The Platinum Award recognises the very best companies within Palletways’ UK network and is presented to those members that excel in the service delivery field.

“We are delighted to have achieved Platinum Club status which is testament to the hard work put in by myself and our dedicated drivers and warehouse staff to maintain and improve our levels of service and efficiency.”
