Pall-Ex has showcased a new livery to commemorate being awarded the Employer Recognition Scheme gold award by the Ministry of Defence, which recognises its commitment to the armed forces.

It is the only pallet network to hold the accolade and reflects its continued work to support ex-military personnel via training, careers, and charity fundraising.

The cameo-inspired livery was revealed in a ceremony at the Reserves Forces and Cadet Association black tie event which took place at the National Memorial Arboretum, ahead of Remembrance Sunday.

Pall-Ex Group chief executive Kevin Buchanan said: “I speak on behalf of everyone at Pall-Ex when I say we are honoured to hold the ERS Gold Award, which recognises our efforts across the business in helping veterans build rewarding careers, with many of our staff having joined us from successful backgrounds within the armed forces.”

The vehicle has been named Poppy and will be used for collection and deliveries around the Leicester area and will support its corporate division.
