Abbey Logistics has extended its contract with Lhoist UK which sees the specialist bulk road tanker company transporting lime to customers across the country.

Abbey, which began working with Lhoist in 2013, provides the company with road tanker transport services through a dedicated fleet of drivers, vehicles and bulk silo road tankers and an operational planning team based at its site in Buxton.

Gwyn Watkins, Lhoist sales and logistics director, said: “We have built a very strong working relationship with Abbey since we began working together in 2013.

“Our customers require high levels of flexibility and dependability which Abbey has been able to deliver, working with us to create a logistics function tailored to the unique nature of our business, ultimately benefitting the wide variety of diverse sectors we support.”

Mike Ellis, Abbey Logistics commercial director, added: “Our continued partnership with Lhoist is thanks to our team of highly talented and professional drivers, together with regular dialogue between our teams and a great working relationship which has allowed us to identify pinch points and take action.

“Despite being the largest bulk powder tanker company in the UK, it is not just our scale that supports our customers, but our willingness and ability to understand the unique challenges each customer faces and then building a solution tailored specifically for them.

“We look forward to continuing our partnership with Lhoist for many years to come.”
