Packaging Services Europe (PSE), the UK’s leading specialist service provider for reusable transit packaging (RTP), has been shortlisted for a prestigious logistics industry accolade.
Joining three other organisations going head-to-head in the ‘Most Innovative Company of the Year’ category at this year’s Freight Transport Association (FTA) Logistics Awards. PSE has been recognised for its pioneering inspect, wash and repair services for plastic pallets and packaging.
Bringing together industry leaders from across the logistics sector, the FTA Logistics Awards shine a spotlight on businesses delivering innovative supply chain services. Having launched in January 2016, PSE has established itself as a leading provider of support services for RTP.
Co-founded by Jane Gorick, who has more than 30 years’ experience across the logistics industry, and Andrew Parkinson, an expert in the design and maintenance of hygienic washing systems, the business has grown its network to include facilities in the Midlands, Yorkshire and Ireland. Its expanding client list includes some of the UK’s foremost grocery retail and FMCG businesses, alongside a number of prominent packaging rental companies.
On joining the shortlist, Gorick commented: “Being recognised by the FTA is an exciting milestone for PSE. It’s especially gratifying to be nominated in a category which celebrates innovation. A key impetus behind PSE was to deliver a bespoke service offering, never-before-seen in the logistics and packaging sectors, so we’re thrilled to have been recognised.
“We’ve experienced consistent growth since launching to market, and our FTA Logistics Award shortlisting is a fantastic testament to that. We’d like to congratulate all of our fellow nominees and wish them luck on the night.”
