On Thursday 15th September 2016, the team from Culina Group and General Mills proudly accepted the SHD Logistics Award for New Facility, presented by leading comedian Mark Watson in front of 600 industry professionals.
The event, which took place at Resorts World Birmingham, celebrated excellence in the logistics industry across eleven main categories. Culina Group won the new facility award for their visionary collaboration with General Mills at Port Salford, the UK’s first Tri-modal logistics facility. The Port Salford depot went live earlier in 2016.
“Port Salford is taking a revolutionary approach to logistics in the UK and it’s our great people who are making it a success. These are really exciting times for all of us at Culina Group and this award reinforces all of the hard work that continues to make Port Salford a success” said Thomas van Mourik, Culina Group CEO.
Peter MacLeod, editor of SHD Logistics, said: “The mood of the evening was celebratory and upbeat, and it was heartening to see the obvious delight and pride shown by the winners. I congratulate Culina Group and General Mills - both very deserving winners.”
