Alliance Healthcare UK has won a ‘special achievement’ award for its work during the Covid-19 pandemic at the Logistics UK Awards 2021.

The pharmaceutical wholesaler and it’s subsidiary, Alloga UK — a specialist provider of supply chain solutions for healthcare manufacturers — received the ‘Special Recognition Award for Outstanding Response to Covid’ at an event held in central London on Thursday, December 9, 2021 — beating off stiff competition from a number of high profile challengers.

Alliance Healthcare’s new managing director Marie Evans said: “I am delighted that our business and team of 6,000 colleagues have been recognised at this level for our contribution to the fight against Covid-19. Our main aim over this unprecedented period is to support the NHS, pharmacy and all UK patients, and this award is true recognition for all of that hard work and dedication.”

The special award category was open to an individual or organisation that demonstrated an outstanding response to the pandemic in 2020 within the logistics sector and included seven other nominees including the likes of National Highways, Hermes UK and Yodel.

Nominees had to demonstrate how each of them led a class-leading response to Covid-19 and how the outcome that followed was achieved.

Chris Williams, managing director at Alloga UK, added: “It is fantastic news that the joint efforts of the Alloga and Alliance Healthcare UK teams has been recognised with this special award from Logistics UK. Significant efforts were and are still required to increase the overall level of responsiveness to support the NHS and the patients that they serve.

“I am very proud of the tireless efforts of our colleagues who have generated exceptional results supporting the fight against Covid-19.”
