March 21 - The Heavies 2016 award ceremony, which took place on March 18 at Bruntingthorpe Airfield and Proving Ground in the UK, managed to raise over GBP8,000 (USD11,500) for international charity Transaid.

Well attended by figures from the UK heavy haulage industry, the event included a networking reception sponsored by the event's headline sponsor, TII Group - which comprises the Scheuerle, Nicolas, Kamag and Tratec brands.

Hosted by UK radio traffic reporter, Sally Boazman, the evening involved a three-course dinner before the presentation of a number of awards celebrating success and innovation in the specialised transport industry.

The awards began with four 'job of the year' categories. Prizes were awarded to Charles Russell Transport for category 1 job of the year; Bugler Transport for category 2; West of Scotland Heavy Haulage for category 3; and ALE for the BE16 category.

Project of the year was awarded to ALE for the transport of 19 transformers, while Allelys Group was presented with the operator of the year award. Team of the year went to Beaver Bridges, while headline sponsor TII Group was awarded the prize for most significant safety initiative. Allelys also took the award for environmental initiative of the year.

Four innovation awards were given on the night, with the first being presented to BlokCam in the end-user sub-category. Vehicle innovation of the year was presented to Mercedes-Benz, while medium trailer innovation was given to Broshuis. The heavy-duty trailer innovation of year award was handed to Nooteboom.

The final few awards saw Mercedes-Benz named vehicle manufacturer of the year and Goldhofer trailer manufacturer of the year. The Earl Attlee award was presented to Allelys; while the lifetime achievement award was given to Graham Hillman.
