Whitham Mills Wins At The Logistics Awards

Whitham Mills honoured with a Warehouse Efficiency Award at the industry night of the year!

 

On Thursday 21 September, the team from Whitham Mills based in Greater Manchester, proudly accepted The Logistics Award for Warehouse Efficiency, presented by comedian Paul Sinha in front of the UK logistics industry.

The event, which took place at the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, celebrated excellence across 12 main categories. Whitham Mills won for its commitment to Warehouse Efficiency due to their outstanding engineering design solution, the roll cage tipper, which has been installed across the 10 Tesco distribution sites. The project for Tesco Plc, with assistance from DS Smith and XPO Logistics, cost around £1.2 Million which required Whitham Mills to design, prototype, trial and install a successful roll cage tipping system which has now reduced the emptying process time from 360 to 48 seconds, as well as saving several million pounds.

After dinner comedian Paul Sinha, better known as ‘The Sinnerman’ on ITV’s The Chase, entertained guests with 20 minutes of stand-up, before acknowledging achievements in 12 main categories including: Corporate Social Responsibility, Future Skills, Environment/Sustainability, Growth, Innovation, Technology Innovation (large), Technology Innovation (SME), New Facility, Safety, Warehouse Efficiency, Operations (Large), Operations (SME) and an individual accolade – The Logistics 100 Award.
