CitySprint courier Mozhghan Khalifah has received an award recognising her role in maintaining the supply of drinking water in one of the UK’s worst hit areas during December’s devastating floods.
Khalifah delivered a vital part from components distributor RS Components to a remote flood-hit water treatment centre, despite road closures, blockages and adverse weather.
Travelling from RS Nuneaton to Keswick, she went above and beyond to ensure the replacement part was safely delivered and the community’s supply of drinking water protected.
Andy Parry, CitySprint service centre manager for Warwick, awarded Khalifah for her considerable efforts.
Andrew Watson of RS Components, who looks after the CitySprint account, said: “Our clients rely on us to be there in times of crisis, which makes the quality and reliability of our logistics partner vital to our work. This case demonstrates what a big impact the commitment and dedication couriers like Mozhghan can make, not just to businesses, but to the local community.”
Patrick Gallagher, chief executive of CitySprint, added: “I am proud to call Mozhghan – who has shown such dedication - a CitySprint courier. As a company, we are nothing without our people, and this highlights the value of the service they provide day in, day out.”
CitySprint has a regional network of 40 service centres across the UK, with a fleet of over 3,000 vehicles able to reach over 88% of the UK mainland within 60 minutes.
