Birmingham-based transport firm Mobile People.Powered.Logistics received a major industry honour at last night’s 31st Motor Transport Awards in London, winning the Livery of the Year Award for a livery change which was part of its strategy to reposition itself as a transport and logistics company rather than a general contract haulage business.

It wanted the design to have a clean and modern feel and be innovative. The new livery is readable from a distance and has been consistently applied across the fleet.  The judges said the livery is “instantly eye-catching” as well as “bold, bright and with good use of colour”. They also said it conveys a “clear message about who the company is and what it does”.

The awards, organised by Motor Transport magazine, are the road transport industry event of the year, recognising innovation, outstanding service, efficiency and quality. Winning a Motor Transport award shows that a business has reached the very highest standards, as judged by an independent panel of experts drawn from the industry.

Livery of the Year was sponsored by SDC Trailers. Television and radio presenter, film critic, and actor Jonathan Ross presented the award in front of more than 1,600 guests at the Grosvenor House – A JW Marriott Hotel on London’s Park Lane.
