Kevin Grey, managing director of Point to Point, part of the UK’s largest independent delivery network APC Overnight, was recognised for his services to the industry at the National Courier Awards, held earlier this week at the Institute of Directors.
Kevin was presented with the Services to Industry award by Institute of Couriers President Lord Falkland, in recognition of his outstanding contribution during the last 41 years.
Presenting the award Lord Falkland said: “This is only the fourth time in the National Courier Awards’ 17 year history that this particular award has been presented. The title is reserved for those who go over and above to ensure fantastic service for customers and promote best practice across the industry. Kevin is an exemplary example of courier professionalism.”
Kevin said: “This was completely unexpected. I’d like to accept this award not just on behalf of myself, but all of those people I have worked with during the past 41 years. I’d also like to say a big thank you to the Institute of Couriers for their on-going support.”
The National Courier Awards was setup by the Institute of Couriers to recognise best practice within the industry. This year’s event was presided over by transport minister Norman Bakewell and the Institute of Couriers president Viscount Falkland.
