We are thrilled to have won a major accolade at the North West Business of the Year Awards.

Kinaxia took the prize in the large business of the year category for companies with more than 250 employees.

The awards, led by, were presented at a gala dinner at The Midland, Manchester, attended by more than 400 people.

Our group chief executive Simon Hobbs said: “This is a very prestigious award which followed a rigorous judging process, which makes our win even more meaningful. 

“It’s fantastic recognition for the efforts of the entire Kinaxia team throughout the past 12 months. I’m extremely grateful to all of our colleagues, not just in the north west but across the whole country, for their hard work and commitment, which is reflected in this tremendous accolade.

“As an organisation of circa £225m in annual turnover and employing nearly 2,000 people, we are on a journey of standardising our back office and operational systems to ensure we offer all our customers a standard, consistent and high level of service across all our UK locations, while retaining our market differential of a family business mindset and values. 

“By the end of January 2024, all of our UK locations will be on standard transport and warehouse operational systems, meaning consistency and additional group synergies through better visibility and standard ways of operating.

“We are on an exciting journey, and this fantastic award just reinforces that we are on the right track and making the traditional UK logistics market sit up and take note of the new and growing Kinaxia Logistics.”
