Bibby Distribution reports that its flexible approach, cost-effective transport solutions and excellent service support have secured it a three-year contract extension with Cambridgeshire-based cardboard manufacturer Jardin Corrugated.
The two companies began working together in 2018, with Bibby Distribution transporting goods from Jardin Corrugated’s production sites in Ely and St Ives across the UK in its fleet of high-cube trailers – each providing a 15 per cent increase in volume versus a standard trailer.
After an extremely successful two years, led by Bibby Distribution’s Site Supervisor Anastasia Paul, which have seen standards raised and costs reduced, the contract has now been renewed until early 2024.
Bob Koczulab, Managing Director at Jardin Corrugated, says: “We have been extremely happy with the level of service we have received from our partners at Bibby Distribution and we’re looking forward to another successful three years.
“During our current relationship with Bibby Distribution they have effectively integrated the transport model to ensure that we continue servicing the needs of our customers in a market that demands speed, agility and responsiveness.
“The specialist trailers used for moving our products has resulted in a reduction of vehicle movements providing efficiency gains, a reduction in our carbon footprint and helped to reduce operating costs.”
Bibby Distribution oversees more than 160 deliveries each week for Jardin Corrugated, transporting packaging to a wide range of market sectors along with collecting paper reels from suppliers on return trips to maximise fleet utilisation and keep costs as low as possible.
Craig Gill, General Manager at Bibby Distribution, says: “Anastasia has done a fantastic job and helped to build an excellent working relationship with her counterparts at Jardin.”
He adds: “At Bibby Distribution we have vast experience in the packaging sector and can handle any situation or issue that may arise professionally and efficiently. We pride ourselves on good communication, excellent service and a flexible approach.”
Jardin Corrugated, part of the Logson Group, manufactures a wide range of boxes from retail ready packaging and regular transit packaging, to complex die cuts and printed cartons for a wide variety of markets.
