Stagefreight retains its title as UK's best Road Freight Operator at Logistics Awards 2021


One of the UK’s biggest business groups, Logistics UK, has crowned Stagefreight the Road Freight Operator of the Year at its annual Logistics Awards, which took place on 9 December 2021 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London. The category was sponsored by Willis Towers Watson with the award presented by the company’s Haulage & Logistics Director, Stewart Osmond.

Stagefreight Ltd is an event transport firm that has worked with theatre, music, TV and corporate event clients since 1986. With more than 30 years’ experience in event transportation, with particular expertise in music, theatre and exhibition transport, its experienced team help its customers through every step of their event planning.

David Wells, Chief Executive at Logistics UK comments: “As an ‘event only’ transport company, Stagefreight and all its employees have diversified, re-trained and grown from a point where most event companies faced closure into a stronger, more resilient, diversified and secure transport company. Eighteen months into a global pandemic, Stagefreight is truly leading the way; the company has certainly pushed its boundaries, and the can-do attitude of all staff and drivers has shone through brightly. I would like to congratulate Stagefreight Ltd for its win; the company represents the ‘the best of the best’ in the road freight sector and to retain this title for another year is truly a unique honour.”

The company is now expanding again. It has invested over £2 million in growing its fleet, having recently taken receipt of four new trucks and has another 20 on order. Its trailer fleet has grown too, with five new curtain siders, eight new fridge trailers added and a further 20 trailers on order.

The Logistics Awards 2021 recognise and celebrate the companies and individuals who have made a significant contribution to the logistics and supply industry over the past 12 months and who excel in their fields. The awards were sponsored by organisations including AEB (International) Ltd, AIPUT (Airport Industrial Property Unit Trust), Brigade Electronics, DDC FPO, Clarios – VARTA Batteries, Logistics UK Fuel Card, Logistics UK Recovery Service, PD Ports, and Willis Towers Watson.
