Roofing manufacturer renews logistics contract

Lancashire-based conservatory roofing manufacturer, Ultraframe, has awarded Bibby Distribution a five-year contract renewal, for which it will continue to manage all aspects of Ultraframe’s supply chain, including transport planning and distribution.

“Every single roof we make is bespoke and comes in a different shape or size, and must be handled with the utmost care. As our sole 3PL provider, we rely on Bibby to help us deliver in all aspects of our distribution process,” said Paul Greaves, logistics manager at Ultraframe.

Having worked for Ultraframe for seven years, Bibby currently makes between 70 and 80 deliveries a day, around 95 per cent of which are delivered on a next-day basis.

It provides a national shared-user distribution service for non-standard, non-palletised goods.

It said that by collecting 80 per cent of Ultraframe’s raw materials from suppliers itself, it is able to deliver annual savings of up to £500,000.
