Maritime Transport group executive chairman John Williams, and his father, Tommy Williams, of TDW Distribution, have both gained an FTA Lifetime Achievement Award for their dedication and extensive contribution to the logistics industry at a ceremony in London on 24 October.

John Williams acquired Maritime Transport in 2001, building the company up from 137 vehicles and revenue of £18 million to a £300 million turnover business, while paying off “daunting” debts.

TDW Distribution is one of the largest carriers of palletised freight, distributing throughout the UK, whilst offering comprehensive warehouse and logistics facilities.
