The fact that Anyvan.com is now an award-winning website will do wonders for our brand, and hopefully the humble man and van too!
(PRWeb UK) November 19, 2010
Anyvan.com founder Angus Elphinstone, 27, rubbed shoulders with dozens of web entrepreneurs at the Royal Institute in London for the event, which celebrated the most innovative websites in the UK.
The shipping and vehicle delivery website, which connects people who need to ship something with transport providers who have empty space in their vans, beat off stiff competition from the likes of Ooh.com and Findababysitter.com.
The winner of Website of the Year 2010 was announced by ex-Dragon’s Den panel member, Doug Richard, who said: “Entrepreneurs see problems and manufacture opportunities. They come up with innovations the world has never seen before, and they put them to work.
“Anyvan.com saves money, time and natural resources by connecting those who want to ship something with those who transport things for a living. A simple thought, a simple online solution, a critical change in the logistics of transport, not just for London, but the UK.”
The grand prize included £1,000 in cash to spend on the business and £500 of advertising, as well as a full SEO audit.
Angus Elphinstone commented: “We are tremendously proud that Anyvan.com has been so well received by the judges, especially given the competition on the night.
“The concept was born from the fact that 50% of vans on UK roads travel half full. Filling up that space not only has obvious benefits for the environment, but also for transport providers who can make extra cash and customers who can have their items moved at a fraction of the cost.
“The fact that Anyvan.com is now an award-winning website will do wonders for our brand, and hopefully the humble man and van too!”
