Abbey Logistics is to increase its bulk chocolate transport contract for Barry Callebaut by 100 per cent.
It will operate vehicles from its new depot near Barry Callebaut’s UK manufacturing site in Banbury, Oxfordshire.
Under the new contract Abbey has increased utilisation of existing vehicles working on the contract and drawn on its own specialist heated chocolate tankers and professional drivers from its wider chocolate tanker network. It has also continued to invest in its fleet and specialist driver team.
Barry Callebaut Group UK supply chain manager Louise James said: “Our customers expect the highest quality products from us, so in turn we expect our transport providers to possess the specialist knowledge and skill required to distribute large volumes of high value chocolate.”
“Abbey Logistics have continued to improve its service to us since the last tender period which has given us the confidence to increase the volume we place with them.”
