Elaine Harries, managing director of the eventual winners, Action Express, said: “This truck pull was our way of showing love for the lorry and flagging up the importance of logistics. Working with lorries is so much more than just driving and it’s a fantastic industry. A lot of people in logistics management started off driving.”
