Glass maker extends contract with P&O Ferrymasters

Glass tableware maker Libbey Leerdam has awarded P&O Ferrymasters a freight management contract extending its existing business with the operator.

The contract adds almost 2,000 loads a year to a long-established haulage based relationship involving around 550 moves a year from Libbey’s factory in the Netherlands to the UK, Italy, eastern Europe, Scandinavia and Greece.

Libbey Leerdam is a division of the US-based group which is the world’s second largest glass tableware producer. The new contract covers outbound FTL and LTL loads from Libbey’s plant in Leerdam and warehouse in nearby Gorinchem.
