May 2011

The AD HGV Network, France's leading independent network of HGV parts distribution and services, is an official partner of the "Haulier of the Year" for the 24th year running. Lets take a look at this partnership and the expertise a committed Network can offer.

Haulier of the Year: the leading promotion in the world of road haulage

The Haulier of the Year Trophy, the judging of which was held on 14 March, is organised by French haulage's leading trade magazine: "L'Officiel des Transporteurs". This Trophy is awarded to a privately-funded French SME for its dynamism, its representativeness within the profession, its economic and/or social performance and its development potential. "The role of the partners is vital. The Trophy distinguishes six road haulage companies, which are recognised for their technical expertise and their commercial initiatives. The partners must sign up to this approach and, through their presence and action, demonstrate this service-oriented entrepreneurship. The Awards Ceremony, always in a prestigious setting, brings together all the partners and Company Heads to represent the world of road haulage, which is subject to increasingly severe economic and ecological constraints," explains Benoit Barbedette, Chief Editor of "L'Officiel des Transporteurs".


The AD HGV Network supports haulage companies

"The AD HGV Network has been a partner of "Haulier of the Year" for 15 years," emphasises Jean-Gabriel Olivier, Chairman of the AD HGV Network. "We are committed to an approach which supports haulage companies. Companies which cover large regions, or several regions, are undergoing huge developments. They want to be offered a uniform package when they turn to a Services Network, and this is one of the commitments of the AD HGV Network, which provides certification of services via a Qualicert benchmark. The core services guarantee a uniform service package to meet their requirements at both regional and national level, and at competitive, uniform prices."
