New cement silo tankers added to Abbey Logistics fleet

Dry Bulk,

Abbey Logistics has added a number of new Feldbinder Silo tanks to support the company’s growing business in the cement and minerals markets.

The new lightweight tanks are designed and built to comply with the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) Silver accreditation, intended to protect vulnerable road users.

Specifications include rear facing cameras, infilled side panels and blind spot minimisation mirrors as well as many more of the latest safety and security features to ensure the safety of other road users.

While the latest equipment is vital, safe operation while on the road will make the biggest difference and that is why all the company's drivers and planning staff working in this area of the business have completed vulnerable road user training, through Abbey Logistics’ JAUPT approved training centre.

Steve Granite, CEO Abbey Logistics Group said: “We have significantly increased our capability and capacity in the cement and minerals markets, and this is reflected in our fleet replenishment and acquisition programme.

“Our commitment to our customers to deliver the highest standards of service can only be delivered if we have a trained and skilled workforce using the latest and best equipment.

“The new Silo tanks give us the ability to offer more capacity and coverage for our customers giving them higher levels of support and flexibility.

“We have grown significantly in the cement and minerals markets over the last couple of years and this increased capacity will enable us to further support our customers in this important sector.”
