ABBEY ROAD TANKS has renewed its bulk liquid distribution contract with Unilever.
The Liverpool-based haulier will handle all on-site tanker and storage requirements at Unilever’s plant on the Wirral. It will also manage all deliveries to third party packaging and storage companies for at least another three years.
Abbey, which has carried out work for Unilever – formerly Lever Brothers – for the past 27 years, is not disclosing the value of the contract.
Dave Coulson, Abbey commercial director, says his firm is delighted with the contract extension. “This demonstrates that our approach to business is to win business and work hard throughout the term to ensure we retain it for many years to come. Unilever is a massive global company and it’s an honour to have such a long history of working with them.” In November last year, Abbey announced a new £2.25m investment programme, which will see it add 15 trucks and six tankers to its fleet by April 2012. It also revealed plans to spend £750,000 improving IT systems.
