A Chorley firm which specialises in transporting furniture has scooped a top industry award for a second time.

Andrew Porter Limited, based in Adlington, was voted the best logistics company by readers of trade magazine Interiors Monthly, after investing in new systems to reduce damage and minimise cancelled deliveries. The company delivers stock to retailers as well as home deliveries to customers.

Managing director Tim Aspey said: “It is very pleasing to have won this award on a second occasion, particularly as we are celebrating the milestone of our 40th year in business this year.

“We have invested in new systems to reduce damage and minimise cancelled deliveries, while improving communications between all levels of the supply chain.”
