It’s not every day you get to ride the London Tube 'dressed to impress' like you’re going to the Oscars – so we made sure to make the most of it, especially as we attended the West London Business Awards ceremony with the whole Parcelly team last night.
Having been shortlisted for a staggering 5 award categories, we certainly had a skip to our steps into the world-famous Wembley Stadium, ready to swoop up another award for our cabinet. And with an impressive list of fellow shortlisted companies, we were delighted to be classed together with great brands including Dreams Limited, McDonald’s, Westfield London and many more.
“We have received more entries than ever before, making this the toughest year yet in which to secure a place on the final shortlist of the West London Business Awards."
Andrew Dakers, CEO of West London Business
Hosted by the glamorous Xtra Factor presenter, Konnie Huq; the room was filled with excitement as she began to read out the winners’ names. Parcelly was called out, winning the “Highly Commended” award for ‘Logistics Business of the Year’! The award recognises the 'logistics business that has worked its hardest to achieve their business goals, having demonstrated initiative, creativity and leadership to be a positive force for improvement in the sector.' From all the shortlisted categories this was definitely the most important one for us, and we are absolutely delighted to have received this award and would like to extend a big THANK YOU to the judging panel as well.
The West London Business district is very important to Parcelly and holds a special place in our heart, as it has been the place for many important "firsts" for our company. West London was not only where the first Parcelly location opened, but also where Parcelly initially launched its business back in 2014. The New West End Company were also the first London BID in London to partner with Parcelly to help ease the increasing pressure of personal parcel deliveries on corporate mailrooms and decrease white van delivery traffic from London’s highly congested roads.
For us, awards aren’t just a celebration of our success, but also a reminder that what we are doing makes a difference, by not only proving to be a smart, convenient click&collect solution for our customers, but also making a difference to the environment. #LiveGreen
