Here at Rix Petroleum, transport is more than reaching a destination; the journey, the return and the friendly service at each stop is just as vital.
Our drivers are on the road each week, ensuring your fuel delivery is made on time, every time. That same enthusiasm reaches out to our sister companies, such as Rix Sea Shuttle and its crew transfer vessels for the offshore renewables industry. Safety, satisfaction and unrivalled service are our priorities.
That’s why we’re over the moon that our parnet company JR Rix & Sons has been named as ‘Transport and Logistics’ Family Business of the Year this week. We were also runners up in the finalists for Yorkshire Family Business of the Year.
The awards are run by Family Business United, an organisation set up to support the UK’s family businesses, and are now in their third year. The Transport and Logistics category takes into account transport operations, route planning, safety and customer service, as well as freight, maritime operations, warehousing, storage and handling. We were up against a host of remarkable family-owned businesses from across the UK, so coming out on top is a remarkable achievement, and one we are very proud of.
This accolade will stand alongside our Feefo Gold trusted merchant Award which saw us achieve 97 per cent customer satisfaction on the online feedback site over the last 12 months. We think it goes to show that for 140 years, we’ve been go the extra mile for you, our customers.
