Mark Murfet, Briggs' VNA and warehouse product manager, commented: "It's a real honour to be shortlisted for such a high-profile award.

"The customer experience centre and our close partnership with NMHG, manufacturer of both Hyster and Yale Europe Materials Handling equipment, has enabled us to develop a unique service that goes far beyond simply supplying and servicing forklift trucks. We are now a key strategic partner for customers and can assist them with everything from choosing the correct warehouse flooring and racking right through to ordering the most appropriate equipment."

Briggs use a 3D warehouse simulator at the heart of the Phoenix Suite, which helps customers to develop the most practical and efficient layout for their warehouses. Able to break down even the most complex operations into the finest detail, the simulator also takes into account factors such as energy consumption, goods flow and replenishment regimes.

The CILT Annual Awards for Excellence 2012 recognises outstanding achievements within the transport and logistics industry and will be held on 18 October at the London Marriot Hotel Grosvenor Square.
