How Cross Country Carriers Achieved the Platinum Award 2020

“Wow, another year and another Palletways Platinum Award for Cross Country Carriers, but this year being extra special for winning ‘Depot of the Year 2019-2020’. Winning these awards creates a real sense of pride within the team at Cross Country Carriers, and with all departments working together, we can ensure we focus on what’s important, delivering a fantastic service!”

We achieved this prestigious award by conforming to consistent Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) within our Palletways Membership.

These KPI’s include:

  • On-Time Deliveries
  • Instant Signatures on Delivery (Immediately Updating the Customer’s Online Portal)
  • Input Volumes
  • European Volumes
  • Plus, many more!

Every month, Palletways looks at the KPI’s and relays all the information back out to the depots. Over the full 12 months, the Cross Country Carriers team maintained the number 1 spot for which the Platinum KPI’s are run.

“Our high levels of operational quality & customer services, made our end goal of gaining maximum points a lot more achievable. This has meant a great deal to every member of staff, we are incredibly proud and we had a lot of fun too!”
