Salt Lake City UT-based England Logistics, the nation’s 11th-largest freight brokerage firm, was named the winner in the Freight/Logistics category for Utah’s Best of State Awards for 2011.
Now in its ninth year, this awards program acknowledges excellence in an array of industry sectors including business, entertainment, education, hospitality, retail, technology, and sports.
“As a freight transportation provider in Salt Lake City we know there are similar providers in the area, which is why this is a very special award for England Logistics,” said Josh England, president of England Logistics. “This being a local Utah recognition makes the honor that much more important to us.”
The Best of State program is dedicated to recognizing and promoting outstanding individuals, businesses, and organizations throughout Utah. According to Chief Executive Officer Dana Layton, winners of the 2011 Best of State Awards have been rated and judged on their impact on the community, excellence and achievement, and innovation and originality. An independent judging process, featuring judges with category-specific credentials, resulted in a confidential tabulation of results by the Gilbert & Stewart accounting firm and culminated in a formal Awards Gala presentation June 4.
At the Awards Gala, winners received minted bronze gold-plated Best of State medals and became eligible to win the Best of State Statue (BOSS), a 24-karat gold-plated bronze and granite sculpture that features the Best of State motto, “Excelling and Surpassing All Else.”
This is England Logistics’ first nomination and first win for the Utah Best of State award.
