Whirlpool UK Appliances wins two Motor Transport Awards
Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, parent company to KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Hotpoint and Indesit, has picked up two awards in the Motor Transport Awards 2018.
Whirlpool UK was one of only two companies to receive two awards at the ceremony, which took place at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on in July 2018.
Whirlpool UK won the Operational and Compliance Excellence Award for their “precise and professional in-house logistics operation” – Hotpoint Home Solutions – which, according to the Motor Transport Awards judges, has showed consistent improvement and investment in people. Whirlpool UK was also recognised for their outstanding compliance score of 97.5%, when audited to check legislation compliance.
The Technical Excellence Award was also won by Whirlpool UK, and the judges complimented “the strong communication with all staff across the organisation and the use of highly targeted projects to evaluate different vehicle specifications.”
Hosted by Jimmy Carr and Rachel Riley, the Motor Transport Awards celebrated excellence in the road freight transport industry.
Dominic Vertuccio, OTD Director UK & Ireland, says: “We are absolutely delighted to receive two Motor Transport Awards. It is thrilling to be recognised by our industry peers, as we have transformed the operations by implementing strong governance and controls in all our operating sites, holding OHSAS 18001, ISO 9001, ISO 5001 and ISO 14001 standards.
“The awards represent the hard work and dedication of all the teams in the supply chain. We look forward to continuing the improvement of our services and to be at the forefront of the final mile of the journey in such a tough and competitive industry.”
