The partnership will see British Gypsum invest substantially in its fleet of streamlined ‘teardrop’ trailers and work with CEVA to deliver a logistics framework that benefits customers while reducing environmental impact and carbon emissions by up to five per cent.
New dual-fuel vehicles, a national depot network and efficient delivery and pick-up schedules that will optimise vehicle capacity are just some of the initiatives to be introduced.
British Gypsum’s marketing director, Sarah Brook, commented: “We’re building on a century of sustainable business management. By teaming up with CEVA we will benefit from world-class logistical expertise, using this to improve performance throughout our supply chain.”
Ian Robb of CEVA added: “This latest agreement with British Gypsum builds on our successful performance at the Kirkby Thore operation in Cumbria where we serve the North of England and Scotland. I am delighted with the trust that British Gypsum has once again placed in CEVA, and look forward to delivering another best-in-class sustainable solution for this important client.”
Along with the sustainable benefits of the vehicles, a new load securing system has also been developed which highlights British Gypsum’s commitment to safety as well as minimising transit damage.
