Bulk road tanker operator Abbey Logistics Group has been awarded a distribution contract for bulk polymer distribution from INEOS Olefins and Polymers UK’s (INEOS O&P) Grangemouth site in Scotland.
Abbey Logistics has seen continued growth in the polymers sector following continued investment in its bulk transport fleet, equipment and added value services, including bag to bulk facilities and warehousing.
In this latest development, Abbey Logistics will take responsibility for transport planning and delivery services for INEOS O&P. Polymer product will be loaded at the company’s dedicated facility in Grangemouth for delivery by road to several of its customers within the UK.
Bulk polymer transport has been a growing area for Abbey Logistics over the last 3 years, with a number of significant contract awards. The company has also invested in added value services to provide customers with solutions that fit their distribution models.
Recent developments include increased space at Abbey Logistics’ warehousing facility close to Liverpool Port, and reformatting services where the company takes delivery of bulk bags and others, before reformatting into bulk tankers for onward distribution through their own network.
Abbey Logistics’ Business Development Director, Mike Ellis, said: “Similar to food grade products, polymers require strict handling procedures to be in place to ensure integrity and no contamination.
“Abbey Logistics’ background in food grade logistics enables the company to control the strict standards of hygiene required for transporting polymer products for our customers.
“The company is delighted to be chosen by INEOS O&P UK to support its business at Grangemouth.”
