Awards & Achievements

C & D’s Continuing Commitment To Achieve Customer Excellence….

Independently and in association with Palletforce, we strive to be the best and are proud to be officially recognised as one of the leaders within logistics.

The Quality and excellence within Palletforce run deep throughout the network and our national awards speak for themselves.


FORS Bronze Award


In February 2014 ,we achieved the Bronze fleet operator recognition scheme (FORS) certification from Tfl. FORS is a certification scheme recognizes those who work lawfully and to best practice by meeting standards set by the scheme.

Here at C & D South West we are dedicated to celebrating excellence and we are incredibly happy that this new level of accreditation will assure customers and demonstrate that we are working at a level above other hauliers.


Logistics Supplier of the Year 2015


As a Member of Palletforce  we are honored to have been crowned “Logistics Supplier of the Year” at the prestigious Grocer Gold Awards 2015.

The award was judged by a panel of FMCG experts, Our Network had to demonstrate “tangible and meaningful” improvements across their entire logistics operation in the last 12 months, such as improving efficiency, extending shelf life, delivering better availability or simply saving money.


ROSPA Gold Medal Award 2015


Palletforce has achieved the RoSPA Gold Award again for 2015. This is the 6th consecutive year that we have achieved the award and have been given the Gold Medal Award for the 2nd consecutive year. This also makes us the first pallet network to achieve 6 consecutive Gold Awards.

The network has pioneered a series of industry innovations including opening a state-of-the-art distribution Hub in Burton-upon-Trent, helping pioneer a new safety trailer and using cutting edge technology to scan and weigh goods. The award is a massive achievement for C & D South West being part of Palletforce and reflects the huge importance placed on good practices – whether within our fantastic new distribution Hub, or while vehicles are on the roads.

Palletforce Sales & Marketing Award 2015


Palletforce has yearly internal awards between depots and for the 2015 annual gala awards we were thrilled to have won the coveted Palletforce Sales & Marketing Award for 2015 out of over 100 depots, this is something we are very proud of.

We believe this is down to the dedication we invest in our customers and reflection of our growth as a business and expansion over 2 depots. This is something we feel reflects highly on not only our client satisfaction but client retention as a business.

Palletforce Networker Of The Year Award 2015


In 2015 we were also awarded in the internal Palletforce gala awards for one of the Palletforce Networker Of The Year. This event celebrates the achievements of the networks members across the UK, the award recognises our outstanding efforts and contributions to the Palletforce network and delivering loads of quality.

Somerset Business Awards 2015


In October 2015 C & D were proud to be nominated as a finalist for the Somerset Business Awards 2015 for the Environmental award, in which we were placed as runners-up. This was based on our major investments in energy efficient, eco-friendly vehicles – including a range of longer trailers as part of the Department for Transport trial to increase load volumes, reduce carbon emissions and maximise fuel efficiency.

However, key to our submission was how membership of the Palletforce network has helped us reduce emissions by around 15% across our vehicles used on national trunking routes.

“With road transport accounting for more than 20 per cent of all UK CO2 emissions, the road haulage industry faces tough challenges when it comes to balancing environmental responsibilities with profitability,” said Carl Wylde, commercial manager of C&D South West.
