Havelock Europa, the interiors contracting company, has signed a three-year contract renewal with Bibby Distribution.
Havelock’s operations director, Paul Doleman, said: “Bibby Distribution has been able to demonstrate how different methods of delivery scheduling can impact on logistics costs; this in turn has made us more efficient, more joined-up and, ultimately, has delivered a new way of working which allows us to manage the dynamic nature of our business with greater consistency.”
Bibby has managed the delivery of furniture into Havelock customers throughout the retail, education, health and financial sectors nationwide since 2004.
Finished products are shipped from Havelock’s warehouse in Dysart, Fife, where a team of Bibby Distribution staff is based on-site to manage the logistics arm of the process six days a week. More than 70,000 pallets were delivered on behalf of Havelock in 2012, with similar volume expected in the coming year.
