Staff at Kinaxia Logistics bring Christmas cheer to disadvantaged youngsters

Staff at Kinaxia Logistics have brought festive cheer to hundreds of youngsters by supporting the Hits Radio Cash for Kids Mission Christmas Appeal.

Kinaxia employees donated more than 600 toys and gifts and over £700 to the appeal.

Items were brought from Kinaxia sites around the country to the Trafford Park headquarters of group company AKW Global Logistics, then delivered to the Mission Christmas warehouse in Hazel Grove, Stockport.

Then more than 40 staff volunteered over two days at the Mission Christmas warehouse to pick and pack gifts ready for sending out to disadvantaged children.

The army of Kinaxia volunteers included chief executive Simon Hobbs, sales and marketing director Vanessa Hope, recruitment and compliance director Mark Stevenson and operations director Alistair Wood.

Simon said: “We are proud to have supported the Mission Christmas Appeal by donating toys, gifts and cash and by volunteering to help bring some festive joy to children around the country.

“As a business we are committed to giving back to our local communities, and the response from our colleagues across the country was tremendous.

“They showed great enthusiasm to support this fantastic cause in different ways, and we are thrilled that their efforts will make a huge difference to many children at Christmas.”

Kinaxia is a top 15 UK logistics group comprising 13 businesses with over 1,600 staff and more than 800 vehicles.

The group has its headquarters in Macclesfield, Cheshire. It has two million sq ft of warehouse facilities nationwide, offering contract packing, e-fulfilment, returns management and storage services.

It has seen significant and continued growth over recent years, with annual revenues now approaching £200m.

Kinaxia was recently recognised as one of Britain’s leading mid-market private companies with its inclusion in the 16th annual Sunday Times PwC Top Track 250 league table, based on sales.

The group was this month ranked as the fastest-growing logistics service provider in the UK by Logistics Manager.
