Suffolk solicitors shortlisted for innovation award

Suffolk based Gotelee Solicitors has been recognised for its unique Gotelee Guardian product safety app, designed to assist those involved in e-commerce distribution.

The firm has been shortlisted in the Global Freight Awards 2018, honouring companies and individuals who have achieved high standards in the freight and logistics industry during the past year.

The App, available to download from Google Play and the App Store, supports warehouse keepers and fulfilment houses in determining whether the goods they are handling meet product safety requirements.

Howard Catherall, Transport and Logistics Partner at Gotelee said: “We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for this award, Gotelee takes considerable pride in its long-standing links with the transport and logistics industry, which is subject to a complex set of rules and regulations.”

HMRC’s Fulfilment House Due Diligence Scheme will place a heavy administrative burden and new obligations on any company or individual storing goods which are imported from outside the EU and being offered for sale online.

Mr Catherall added: “Having recognised the knock-on impact that recently introduced laws will have upon e-commerce distribution businesses in particular, Gotelee Guardian has been developed to provide a cost-effective, quick and easy to use digital aid for those operating in this sector.”

The Global Freight Awards, now in their 22nd year, will be announced at a black-tie evening on November 15 at the Royal Lancaster London hotel.

The Gotelee Guardian app has already earned Gotelee an ‘Innovation in Technology’ award at the annual UK Warehousing Association Awards and has also been nominated in the Law Society’s prestigious Excellence Awards, the highest accolade for law firms in England and Wales.
