Haulier Quality Award

Dutch haulier Oostvogels Transporten has become the latest winner of an annual quality award for transport sub-contractors working with P&O Ferrymasters at Tata Steel’s main European plant in IJmuiden, The Netherlands.

A joint initiative by Tata Steel and lead logistics contractor P&O Ferrymasters, the award is open to the site’s top 20 haulage partners – who each make more than 300 collections a year for deliveries across Europe. Judging is based on the results of constant, pro-active monitoring of service standards and health & safety performance, a system that provides regular feedback to help hauliers improve on any areas that score below average.


Breda based Oostvogels topped the performance table. The award ceremony took place in February during the annual carriers meeting at the Hoogovens Museum IJmuiden.
