Nampak picks Bibby for transport

Nampak Plastics Europe has chosen Bibby Distribution to provide transport services for its high density polyethylene (HDPE) packaging.

Bibby will transport HDPE packaging from Nampak’s head office in Newport Pagnell, across the UK to its in-plants and dairy customers. It will also act as a 4PL, managing sub-contractors for deliveries in the Republic of Ireland and the Netherlands.

The new contract means Bibby Distribution will transport HDPE packaging from Nampak’s head office in Newport Pagnell.

Nampak managing director Arnold Mitterer said: “Our challenge is that we produce a low-cost, light-weight product which is high volume, and that comes with a relatively significant transport cost. They have a huge national network that’s extremely flexible which provides us with a value-add solution. This improves our overall efficiency in our transport network.

Bibby plans to invest more than £5 million in fleet and technology improvements over the next year for the contract.
