The parent company of popular eco-brands method® and Ecover® credits Bibby Distribution’s provision of cost-effective logistics for helping it to achieve 10 per cent annual sales growth.
People Against Dirty (PAD), which manufactures and supplies eco-friendly personal and domestic cleaning products, says the 3PL’s distribution support and service levels in excess of 99.6 per cent on-time and in-full, have been fundamental to its business success.
Bibby Distribution’s team has carefully analysed every aspect of the contract to maximise efficiency, and reduced costs by increasing the number of items per pallet and revising delivery routes.
To further lower emissions – in line with PAD’s eco-conscious company values and Bibby Distribution’s own ‘Road to Zero’ strategy which aims to achieve zero harm, zero waste and zero environmental impact – the team has also utilised two dual-fuel tractor units.
UK General Manager of People Against Dirty, Adam Buckley, says: “Bibby Distribution’s knowledge and expertise have been the backbone of our growth in a competitive market.
“The fantastic team at Corby have examined every detail and introduced extensive staff training to tailor their service to our unique business demands, rather than expecting us to fit into a set model.”
Bibby Distribution now moves hundreds of thousands of cases of method® and Ecover® products annually to major supermarkets and online retailers nationwide.
And the family-owned logistics firm played a key role in PAD being named Household Supplier of the Year 2019 by a major supermarket chain, topping a list of 130 competitors for flexibility and adaptability.
Buckley adds: “Bibby Distribution’s commitment and ethos matches ours and they will play an instrumental part in our continued growth.”
