Menzies Distribution’s MDS and TIP Group win Logistics UK ‘Logistics Partner of the Year’ Award

We are delighted to announce that Menzies Distribution Group company Menzies Distribution Solutions (MDS) and TIP have won the Logistics UK ‘Logistics Partner of the Year’ Award at the Logistics Awards 2023.


The award submission tells the story of how a relationship, which began essentially as a maintenance agreement in 2011, has evolved into a true partnership of mutual benefit, whilst delivering a positive impact on the UK logistics industry. That impact is a result of multiple initiatives that our two organisations have embarked on together over the years, many of which have driven efficiency and sustainability.


Of the partnership, Luc Kergoat, Account Manager at TIP said “Our tried and tested relationship has evolved to be an open one, with both sides working as an extension of each other’s team. It is genuinely a true partnership.”


Mike Furnival, TIP Managing Director added, “MDS has a clear vision for its fleet management programme, which allows us to tailor our services to their requirements. They encourage us to go above and beyond and trust us to deliver for their fleet. They have created an environment that enables us to work together, continually improving everything we do for them. The transparency between our businesses is vital to achieving our joint goals and ensures our future alignment. It’s clear we have a partnership rather than a traditional supplier-customer relationship.”


Richard Morson, Managing Director, MDS said “TIP manages our account to make the services they provide integrate seamlessly with our operation. Our partnership has grown, as our business has grown. TIP continually meets our trailer services’ needs and introduces new initiatives to our fleet such as digitisation and braking performance monitoring. We are delighted with our partnership, the impact on our customer service levels cannot be underestimated. We look forward to evolving it further.”


Part of the Menzies Distribution Group, MDS provides contract logistics, warehousing, distribution, systems integration and added value services to a wide range of customers and long-term partners.


TIP provides trailer and truck rental, leasing and added value services, including repair, maintenance, roadside assistance and telematics solutions to MDS.


Congratulations to all at Menzies Distribution Solutions and TIP who help make our partnership happen and on the award win.
