Olly Magnus, 46, said: "It's not easy to step in to the footsteps of your own father and continue the legacy of his career in logistics, but staff have really supported me through that and shown that they are so passionate about what the company does.

"Every member of the team has worked tirelessly over recent months to ensure our customer service and our business delivery is first class, and that we are a force to be reckoned with in the decade ahead.

"I'm enormously proud to think that the business has secured this award - in particular because it is voted for by peers in the sector."

The company employs 120 people and operates 50 trucks from its base in Great Blakenham.
