By utilising multiple logistics partners, the new model offers improved delivery performance and increased flexibility to make life easier for the customer.
As part of the change, Wincanton has been appointed as the primary logistics partner across a majority of Aggregate Industries locations due to their experience and reputation within the construction industry, and their established partnership with Aggregate Industries’ cement and ready-mixed concrete businesses.
Shaun Elliott, Head of Logistics, Concrete Products at Aggregate Industries said: “We are always striving to provide excellent customer service, as well as great quality products and solutions. To help us achieve this, we regularly review our operations, suppliers and partners and explore new ways to improve our customers’ experience with us and make things easier for them.
“All of our logistics partners, including Wincanton, bring with them vast experience in the construction industry, and our customers will see the benefit.”
Chris Fenton, Managing Director, Industrial & Transport at Wincanton said: ““Our existing relationship with AI has enabled us to demonstrate our commitment to service excellence. Our track record for delivering an efficient and sustainable specialist vehicle network, and our best in class health and safety record, were all factors in securing this contract.”
