9 July 2024 – London, UK – The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK – CILT(UK) – has revealed its Top 30 UK Logistics Service Providers for 2024. 

This now marks the seventh year of this prestigious list and in a significant development, CILT(UK) has also introduced a new Top 10 list for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the logistics sector.

The ranking is based on a comprehensive assessment of publicly available data, including company financials, performance, professional accreditation, gender pay gap, modern slavery statements, and human resources practices.

This year’s list recognises major global logistics players, as well as a number of local family-owned businesses. DHL, Ligentia UK, Kuehne + Nagel, DPD Group and Edge World Logistics took the Top five spots this year and for the third year in a row, DHL was crowned the winner of the CILT(UK) Top 30 Logistics Service Providers.

Commenting on this achievement, Saul Resnick, CEO of DHL Supply Chain UK & Ireland said: “It's truly an honour to receive this award for the third consecutive year. “This recognition from CILT is a fantastic validation of our efforts. While we don't start the year aiming for awards, they're a welcome confirmation that we're on the right track. It's an output of all the hard work our team puts in – from training staff to serving customers and embracing innovation.”

Chief Executive at CILT UK, Paul Adams, said: “Now in its seventh year the Top 30 Logistics Service Providers list is a celebration of excellence and innovation in our industry. It is also inspiring to see the introduction of a new Top 10 list for SMEs in the logistics sector as well.

“Each organisation on both lists has demonstrated a commitment to delivering outstanding service and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in logistics. Congratulations to all the companies who have earned their place in this year’s list, and especially to DHL for securing the top spot once again."
