Ireland and UK supply chain specialists Oakland International have been confirmed as finalists in the Innovation Award category of this year’s prestigious Global Freight Awards (GFA) to be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane in London on Thursday, 19th November.

Shortlisted for their pioneering Distressed Load Management Service, whereby Oakland reduces food losses for customers, loss adjusters and hauliers on distressed loads. The service delivers a number of environmental benefits for customers and as a responsible company working within the community, Oakland is continuing to help lead the way in innovation and industry change.

Oakland’s advanced approach and desire to be sector leading, has created a unique and ground-breaking service that can save up to 90% of produce, which would otherwise have been completely destroyed. To date around 1,800 tonnes of food have been saved from going to waste, and those products that cannot be saved forwarded to anaerobic digestion plant centres to be used for renewable energy, and therefore nil to landfill.

Oakland International’s Quality Assurance Manager, Louise Smith, commented: “We are delighted to be named as finalists in the Innovation Award category as it is positive testament to Oakland’s passion and commitment as a responsible family business with a culture that embraces innovation, flexibility, and change whilst seeking new ways of working that delivers sustainability and value added services throughout our partner networks.”

Forging ahead and building a reputation for growth through sustainability, Oakland’s appetite is to continue to add value and leverage from their expertise, whilst gaining competitive advantage. Oakland supplies major UK and Irish retail, wholesale, discount and convenience markets from their UK and Ireland depots.

The Global Freight Awards (GFA) is now in its 19th year and celebrates the industry’s best talent and business achievements and is a major event in the freighting industry calendar.
