Gotelee Solicitors has been awarded the Innovation in Technology Award at the prestigious annual UK Warehousing Association Awards Lunch, held at the Dorchester in London, on Wednesday 4th July. The award goes to the company that has demonstrated a bold and innovative response to the changing market, by the introduction of new technology, products or processes.
The Gotelee Guardian product safety app has been designed to assist those involved in e-commerce distribution – such as fulfilment houses and warehouse keepers – to comply with product safety rules. The app user is taken through a simple series of defined steps to check the safety properties of products that the fulfilment house or warehouse is handling.
Users can identify products in their possession which do not comply with product safety requirements and in doing so, can comply with their own product safety obligations to ensure that unsafe products do not leave their premises.
Use of the app generates a clear documented audit trail to demonstrate that a product safety due diligence check has been completed on a specified date and at a specified time. A report is generated which enables the fulfilment house and warehouse keeper to then take appropriate action to ensure that unsafe products do not leave the premises.
Gotelee faced tough competition; also nominated were Kardex Remstar, Neopost, Bito Storage and Avery Weigh-Tronix.
UKWA Chief Exec Peter Ward said: “We had an exceptional level of entries this year both in quantity and quality; congratulations to all the worthy finalists”.
Howard Catherall, Transport and Logistics Law Partner at Gotelee said: “We’re thrilled to have been selected for this award, having been chosen from such a strong field”.
The award comes at a great time for Gotelee with the Gotelee Guardian App having been launched and available to download from the AppStore and Google Play by not only their own clients but by the logistics community at large.
