Edible oil maker picks Bibby for distribution

Bibby has won a three-year contract with edible oils and fats manufacturer AAK to handle all outbound distribution from AAK’s Hull factory, delivering more than 1,000 pallets a week to food wholesalers and retailers a year.

AAK transport manager Martin Smith said: “When we’re sending out products, our customers need to know that they’re going to arrive precisely on time and in the same condition as when they left the factory. Bibby Distribution is already well established in the food sector, so we knew we could trust them.”

As part of the contract, Bibby Distribution has introduced a new electronic system that allows AAK to share order and invoice information with customers online, speeding up the purchasing process.

Smith said: “The new technology Bibby Distribution has brought in means we can share information much more quickly with customers. That frees up our time, and allows us to focus on improving and scaling the business.”
