Abbey Logistics increases volume of bulk chocolate transport by 100%

UK road tanker logistics provider Abbey Logistics has increased the volume of bulk chocolate transport it carries for Barry Callebaut by 100%, following a competitive tender process.

The volume increase follows several service improvements on existing volumes over the past year, which were implemented as a result of collaboration between the two companies to improve the services Barry Callebaut offers customers.

The new contract, which was initiated in April 2019, further reinforces Abbey’s position as the UK’s largest bulk chocolate transport road tanker operator. Abbey will increase utilisation on existing vehicles already working on the contract, and will draw on its specialist heated chocolate tankers and professional drivers from its wider chocolate tanker network.

Abbey plans to operate vehicles from its new depot near Barry Callebaut’s UK manufacturing site in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

“Our relationship with Barry Callebaut is now 15 years old and throughout that time we have focused on continuous improvement and working in partnership to understand and support Barry Callebaut overcome their distribution challenges,” said Dave Coulson, commercial director at Abbey Logistics.

Louise James, UK supply chain manager at Barry Callebaut added: “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. We know Abbey well and we are pleased to extend and strengthen our partnership.”
