Bed contract for Bibby

Aerobed, which makes inflatable beds, has awarded Bibby a four year distribution contract to be based at the company’s Meir Point site in Stoke on Trent.

Aerobed managing director Julian Williams said: “One of the key advantages is the ‘end-to-end’ solution including sea freight which was not part of our initial thinking but was brought to our attention by Bibby and has definitely lowered our costs and lowered the cycle time for getting goods into warehouse”

“Previously the business had chosen logistics partners based on what was perceived to be low cost. However, my experience has been that you get what you pay for and since moving to Bibby our service levels have improved beyond recognition which has driven our internal costs down and customer satisfaction is at an all time high”
