Leading trailer and body manufacturer The Cartwright Group were amongst the winners at the recent annual ASDA Carrier of the Year Awards in Leeds where the company received the prestigious ‘Distribution Service Provider of the Year Award’.
The award was presented by Ian Stansfield, Distribution Director for ASDA, and was received by John and Steven Cartwright.
The event is in its fourth year however this is first time that ASDA have included this category for suppliers.
In winning this award Cartwright has been recognised for its support to ASDA not only for the new products that are supplied and the product support during operation, but also for implementing a web based portal that gives vital information with regards to the maintenance that Cartwright manage for the Double Deck trailers that ASDA operate.
Cartwright has been supplying ASDA with a wide range of trailer products for over 10 years and its products have helped the retail giant to significantly reduce its carbon footprint through reduced fuel costs and miles on the road.
ASDA has progressively become one of Cartwright’s major customers, working closely with the Cartwright team in Altrincham to help create products that offer measurable solutions to its ever increasing distribution requirements.
Steven Cartwright, Director of the Cartwright Group commented: "To win the ‘Distribution Service Provider of the Year Award’ from such a respected national company as ASDA is a tremendous accolade for our business and indeed the team at Cartwright who work closely with ASDA on a daily basis.
"Our relationship with ASDA has grown over the years to become a true partnership with agreed quality standards that are now a benchmark.
"We look forward to many years association with ASDA as the company goes on to even greater success in the future."
This is a major achievement for Cartwright, which this year celebrates its 60th anniversary in manufacturing at its South Manchester location.
