Barlows, one of the UK’s largest commercial interior contractors, has contracted Bibby Distribution to manage its full logistics operations from inbound international movements, to storage, pick and pack, despatch and delivery. The development follows a review of Barlows’ warehouse and logistics operations by Bibby last September.
Iain Speak, commercial development director for Bibby Distribution, says: “The challenges ahead will involve centralising warehouse operations, and enhancing transport operations. This will significantly contribute in supporting Barlows’ continuous growth strategy.”
According to Stuart Caborn, Barlows’ supply chain development manager: “We are entering a new exciting stage in the development of our supply chain partnerships – to deliver our global strategy for excellence. Bibby have been carefully selected to enable us to make a quantum leap forward in meeting the needs of our customers in a fast moving market place.”
