BWG Foods has been recognised with the Overall Logistics & Transport Excellence Award, the flagship prize of the highly coveted Irish Transport & Logistics Awards.

The Overall Logistics & Transport Excellence Award recognises exceptional achievement and is the most prestigious honour in the logistics and transport industry. The title was awarded in recognition of the exceptional standards set by BWG Foods’ National Distribution Centre.   The company was also honoured with the Own Account Transport Operator of the Year award which recognises major achievement over the past 12 months from a company that operates its own fleet of vehicles to distribute their own goods. BWG Foods was selected on the basis of its continued improvements towards sustainable transport solutions and increased efficiencies throughout its logistics and transport network. BWG remains committed to reducing its Co2 emissions throughout its operations.

BWG Foods operates one of Ireland’s largest and most complex distribution operations which includes a 240,000 square foot National Distribution Centre situated in Kilcarbery in County Dublin and a modern delivery fleet that extends to approximately 120 vehicles.

Commenting on the award, Simon Marriott, Chief Operations Officer, BWG Foods, said, “Operating a logistics and distribution operation of such an immense scale requires deep methodology, precision, efficiency, and an openness to innovation and continuous improvement. At the heart of our business is an exceptional team who are 100 percent committed to ensuring BWG Foods has the most sophisticated and effective distribution operations possible and these awards are testament to their unwavering passion and determination. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far but are equally determined to keep pushing forward to ensure that we can continue to deliver an industry leading service to our customers.”
