Gotelee Solicitors shortlisted for national innovation award

Leading Suffolk law firm Gotelee is celebrating after being shortlisted for a prestigious national innovation award.

The firm has been named as a finalist in the 2018 Logistics Awards, organised by the Freight Transport Association, which celebrate supply chain excellence and recognise leaders who have made a significant contribution to the industry.

Gotelee has been shortlisted in the Most Innovative Product of the Year category for its Gotelee Guardian Product Safety Due Diligence App, available to download from the App Store and Google Play, which helps those involved in e-commerce distribution to determine whether the goods they are handling meet product safety requirements.

The app was launched ahead of the introduction of strict regulations which will place e-commerce distribution businesses in the UK under much greater scrutiny by enforcement authorities.

Gotelee will be judged by the FTA’s Board, which represents some of the country’s biggest logistics businesses, against entries from the other shortlisted organisations, with the ultimate winners named at a glittering ceremony to be held at the Royal Lancaster London on Thursday, 13 December 2018.

In addition to the award presentations, the evening will feature a welcome speech by the Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, Secretary of State for Transport, and post dinner entertainment from Dara O’Briain, one of the best-known faces on British and Irish TV.

Howard Catherall, Transport and Logistics Partner at Gotelee said: “We are delighted to have been recognised for our work on the Gotelee Guardian. Being shortlisted for this prestigious award, alongside some other great companies, is a real acknowledgement of the whole team’s effort and we are really looking forward to the awards presentation in December.”

David Wells, Chief Executive of the FTA, said: “These finalists really are the crème de la crème of our sector; the companies and individuals driving the UK economy forward and keeping the wheels of business moving.

“The judges were bowled over by the dedication, diligence and expertise shown by each finalist. They should all be extremely proud of the invaluable contribution they are making to the logistics industry, and to the continued success of the UK’s economy.”
