CM Downton has sealed “a multi-million pound” contract with Smurfit Kappa, transporting packaging products from two manufacturing sites in the south west.

The EV Cargo-owned company said the three-year deal will help boost efficiency, reduce empty mileage and streamline transport operations.

It said load fill would be maximised by its investment in 30 bespoke, tall trailers for the contract and it also intends to trial the use of semi-trailers.

“The addition of this major new contract with Smurfit Kappa has marked our intentions for the year," said CM Downton MD Zac Brown.

“Leveraging the combined expertise of EV Cargo enables Downton to compete for and secure significant new business.”

Formerly CM Downton operations director, Brown was made MD of the company in January 2020.

He replaced Duncan Eyre who has become chief executive of EV Cargo Logistics.
