Suttons Tankers has won a five-year contract with AdBlue producer Yara for the customer delivery of the company’s Air1-branded bulk AdBlue.

Part of the global Suttons Group, the company will transport the clear non-toxic liquid across the country from sites in Scunthorpe, Immingham, Tilbury, Widnes and Gretna.

AdBlue is a diesel exhaust fluid used in vehicles with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to reduce harmful gases being released into the atmosphere.

Commented Suttons Tankers MD Michael Cundy: “We already have a strong relationship with Yara and look forward to further delivering efficiencies for the business.

“The innovations and efficiencies of Suttons’ UK-wide depot network and an ability to respond quickly to Yara’s future needs were instrumental in helping us secure this significant new contract for our tanker division.”

Paul Norman, UK & Ireland manager for the Air1 business at Yara, said: “As the largest AdBlue manufacturer with a worldwide presence, we needed a partner that is able to deliver a safe and reliable service.

“This latest partnership with Suttons sees a reduction in mileage for our fleet. This not only reduces cost, but also improves customer service which is a key focus of ours. It also has a positive impact on our carbon footprint.”

Suttons operates in the UK with a fleet of more than 700 vehicles focused on the chemicals, gas and fuel sectors and internationally with key business centres in New Jersey, Widnes, Antwerp, Ludwigshafen, Kuantan, Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo.
