The challenges our customers increasingly face include increased manufacturing complexity, shorter lead times, variable product demand, seasonal demand cycles, reducing inventory levels and increasing cost pressures. Managing their own end-to-end logistics adds to this complexity and takes their focus from their core activities.
Abbey’s end to end logistics services ensure that our customers’ supply chains are performing to their optimum by managing every aspect from demand planning, stock control, vendor managed inventory to vehicle and asset cleaning and maintenance.
Under Abbey’s management, we can deliver measurable cost savings, improved service, fewer empty miles, full visibility of stock, reduced inventory levels and improved order fulfilment capability. This is all supported by a suite of KPI reports that demonstrate how your supply chains are performing in real-time at any time.
As the UK’s largest food tanker business and leading transport provider in other sectors such as construction materials, plastics, animal feed and non-hazardous products, we work with our customers to get to know their business and devise a tailored solution design to address their own specific challenges.
The result is a stronger, more efficient, high performing supply chain that lets our customers focus on their core business instead of daily transport tasks and the associated resource, cost and time.
Our ability to customise and deliver a solution that addresses each customer’s specific requirements makes Abbey a true extension of our customers’ business and ensures we are both on the same side, working towards the same goals of optimisation, flexibility, efficiency, continuous improvement, and high performance.
Abbey has been recognised by several industry awards for our collaborative work with customers and the results we have achieved together. This includes teamwork and partnership recognition for our work with British Sugar, Hovis, Tarmac and ADM among others.
