Fowler is Asda Primary Carrier of the Year

Spalding, UK: For the second year in succession Fowler Welch has received Asda’s Primary Carrier of the Year award at the supermarket’s Supply Chain Awards.

This is the fifth year Asda has recognise third party logistics providers with the Primary Carrier. Fowler Welch was named as the winner against strong competition from some of the industry’s major players. This repeat win in the Primary Carrier category follows Fowler Welch’s receipt of Most Outstanding Service Award from Asda in 2009.

“The complexity of our work for Asda is significant,” says  Nick Hay, managing director, Fowler Welch. “The increasing demand for day-one for day-two lead times and seven-day ordering and delivery across multiple categories makes this achievement even more notable and is truly industry leading.

Asda says in its citation: “We have a long standing relationship with Fowler Welch who have consistently delivered. The Primary Carrier of the Year award recognises their strength and reliability, whilst responding to a number of ‘additional’ challenges, and going the extra mile to ensure the best results for Asda customers.”
