Eddie Stobart has been awarded a five-year contract by building materials company Tarmac
The new contract, which began at the beginning of December, will enable Tarmac to restructure its Cement and Lime business from a national to a regional transport setup for cement hauliers.
Tony Leighton, Sector Director at Eddie Stobart said:
“We’re delighted to support Tarmac in its efforts to restructure its distribution and supply chain model to offer a flexible service for customers. We’re proud to be selected as a trusted partner through this process and the contract further underlines our commitment and experience in the manufacturing, industrial and bulk sector.”
Tarmac will use Eddie Stobart’s fleet to help distribute bulk and packed cement to customers in the South East of England. The new regional model will be rolled out with support from Eddie Stobart and will help Tarmac to provide “a localised service with enhanced resilience, flexibility, service, cost and safety for its customers”.
Terry Scott, National Logistics Manager at Tarmac, said:
"Our supply chain and logistics operations are crucial to maintaining Tarmac Cement and Lime’s position as the UK’s market leader.
