We’ve been shortlisted for FIVE industry awards!

What better way to draw our incredible 50th anniversary year to a close than by being shortlisted for FIVE industry awards?

We are over-the-moon to have been shortlisted for five QSi Awards this year in the categories of

  • Large Private Hire Company of the Year
  • Driver of the Year
  • Community
  • Environment
  • Marketing

For anyone who doesn’t know, the QSi awards – which stands for Quality, Service and Innovation – are the only national awards for the UK’s Chauffeur and Private Hire Industry and are run by industry publication Professional Driver Magazine.

There are various reasons why we were shortlisted, most of which reflect our dedication to looking after the customers and communities that have helped us make our 50-year journey from north London minicab office to the international delivery, courier and passenger car service we are now.

Our pioneering environmental work, such as being the first in the industry to partner with The Energy Saving Trust, continues, as does our sponsorship of local events, voluntary and fundraising support. In addition, we have taken on a milestone marketing project this year with a full rebrand.

But the category we are perhaps most proud to have been shortlisted for is Professional Driver of the Year 2017, in which our nomination recognised the work of our driver Marc Brodie

Sales and Customer Relations Director, Zoë Walsh, explains, “Marc joined us just five years ago and is a highly-trained driver who often represents us with high-profile clients. He is popular with the whole GLH ‘family’ thanks to his enthusiasm and willingness to help his colleagues out.

However, it is Marc’s care for customers who need extra support which has resulted in him being shortlisted for this award. From helping a customer who had forgotten her purse in with her shopping and telling her not to worry about payment, to earning the praise of the parent of a young passenger with Down’s Syndrome who Marc has helped get independently to and from her course, to helping an older gentleman access extra support at home after helping him in from a hospital appointment and being concerned about his living conditions.”

Marc and all our drivers represent us every day and we couldn’t be prouder of them.

The glittering QSi Awards evening, hot on the heels of the National Courier Awards in which we won in three categories, takes place on 23rd November at Effingham Park Hotel.
