Bibby extends Through-the-Night service

Bibby Distribution is extending its Through-the-Night business-to-business delivery service. The service started 15 years ago for customers in the automotive sector but Bibby now hopes to attract customers in other sectors.

Bibby believes there could be a role for such a service in white goods manufacturing and retailing, providing warranty repairs and service, satellite and digital television installers, telecoms and engineering companies, even parts for essential services such as power generating plants, paper mills, the emergency services – in fact, anywhere that carries high consequential costs of failure.

Business development director Tony Mohan said: “Many industries depend on high-value parts on a just-in-time basis to negate the need to keep large volumes of key parts on-site yet striking a balance of keeping customers happy by providing fast repair and replacement services.”
