Labyrinth wins prestigious CILT UK Award for Excellence

Labyrinth scoops top industry award for ground-breaking Transport Compliance Product

Labyrinth Logistics Consulting scooped a top industry award last week as their innovative compliance web application SilkThread® won the Information Management category at the CILT UK Awards for Excellence.

The award which recognises innovation in logistics was presented at a glittering ceremony at Lancaster Gate, London.

Labyrinth has spent two years developing, launching and fine tuning its software which provides an easy to use comprehensive online tool for transport operators – from single depot to major multi-site businesses – to manage all aspects of the complex but crucial requirements of transport compliance.

The on-line tool guides users through self-audit of their operation identifying issues and gaps in compliance, alerts them to key dates, keeps them up to date with relevant legislation changes and gives them an up-to-date dashboard of compliance status by depot across their operation.

Users have found that using the application has a significant positive effect on the way that their organisation manages compliance; making it a part of everything they do – “SilkThread® gives you a complete understanding of your own operation…you address issues as you go along because you understand them all”.

Labyrinth MD Ruth Waring FCILT said “We are delighted to have received this award which recognises the expert knowledge and painstaking effort that has gone into delivering our vision for an application that makes transport compliance part of the modern online world that businesses operate in. Compliance information like other business critical information needs to be visible, accessible and 100% up-to-date and SilkThread® gives organisations the tool they need to deliver that”.

Previous winners and nominees for this award include household names and major businesses such as Wickes, Transport for London, Heathrow and National Express.  In contrast Labyrinth Logistics is an SME with a high level of expert knowledge in this area which has allowed them to deliver a targeted solution, using their industry expertise and market knowledge.

These are interesting times for innovations in transport compliance as the DfT move towards the Earned Recognition model of regulation.  Labyrinth is currently working on rolling out SilkThread® into the critical compliance areas of Earned Recognition and Health & Safety
