Cardboard manufacturer Board24 has extended its contract with Bibby Distribution after the 3PL’s team demonstrated outstanding reliability and commitment to efficiency.
Bibby Distribution staff are based at Board24’s Coalville and Preston depots, delivering up to 90 loads each day using 40 tractor units hooked up to high-cube trailers.
The business has full traceability of its goods at all times as each vehicle is fitted with telematics, and the high-cube trailers maximise the amount of cardboard that can be transported on each journey.
Managing Director at Board24, Richard McBride, says: “Our products need to be delivered at set times, so ensuring that happens without any delays is essential. Bibby Distribution knows exactly how we work and always get the job done. The team continually demonstrates that they can help us keep our promises to customers, as they have been doing since 2010.”
He adds: “The high-cube trailers maximise how much can be carried, and by having Bibby Distribution staff based on our sites, we have immediate access to support and our operations run more efficiently. We work so closely together that any issues can be resolved in a matter of minutes before they become serious, and without affecting our overall service.”
Board24 is a manufacturer of boxes, corrugated packaging and sheet board, with more than two decades’ experience in the industry. The business is part of the Logson Group and a sister company to Jardin Corrugated – also a customer of Bibby Distribution.
