Hastings Colleagues Celebrate Recognition at Truckfest

September 05, 2018


Blakemore Logistics colleagues in Hastings are celebrating after receiving recognition for their trucks at Europe’s biggest trucking festival, Truckfest.

Staff members from the regional distribution centre had three of their vehicles highly commended at the Truckfest South East event, which took place at Hop Farm in Kent over the weekend of August 18th and 19th.

This is the third year that the Hastings colleagues have attended the event, with 2018 proving to be the most successful yet. All three of the trucks that were entered for judging at the showground received ‘Highly Commended’ certificates from the judges.

Hastings General Manager Phil Burton commented: “A massive well done and congratulations to everyone who worked tirelessly to clean, polish and present the trucks to showroom condition in the lead up to this event.

“Dave Philpott, Anthony Page, Luke Morris and Howard Taylor all put in an amazing effort – largely in their own time and after a full day at work – to get the trucks looking like new.

“The event was well attended, and the trucks were well received by members of the public, who commented on how impressive they looked, and that it was nice to see a SPAR truck at the event, as SPAR were the only convenience retailers represented at the show.

“Now all of the trucks are back at the depot doing their ‘day job’, so please look out for them on the road as they will be the shiniest trucks on the fleet – for a while anyway!”
