End-to-End Logistics

Warehousing & Materials Handling

Abbey operates 150,000ft2 of warehousing units on the Wirral, North West England. The warehousing space is strategically located close to the M53, M56, M6 and M62 motorways and Liverpool port.

The Wirral warehouse is a secure, modern space, manned 24/7 and featuring the latest in warehouse technologies and we have invested heavily in market leading Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), to provide customers with real-time visibility of our warehouse operations and their stock levels.

We also operate a food grade liquid drumming facility at our Wirral warehouse, which provides safe, hygienic and efficient drumming of liquid products.  The drumming service provides significant added value to the bulk liquid transport we provide to customers, as we are able to collect liquid products in our road tankers and deliver them to our drumming facility, where the finished products are drummed and prepared for onward transportation.

Also on-site Abbey operates a bag to bulk materials handling facility that processes bulk powder reformatting from bulk bags of various sizes road tankers and silo containers.

Enhance your competitive advantage by letting the experts manage the end-to-end logistics

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 focus of their core activities.

Benefit from our experience and expertise

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, less 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 demonstrates how your supply chains are performing in real time at any time.

Secure and personalised logistics solutions

As the UK’s largest food tanker business and leading transport provider in other sectors such as minerals, 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, efficiency, continuous improvement, and high performance.

Abbey’s end to end logistics service includes:

  • Procurement, negotiation and contracting
  • Effective planning and forecasting
  • In-plant resources
  • Management reporting and interactive dashboard to monitor performance
  • Detailed analytics and reporting of service, cost and performance
  • Ongoing continuous improvement plans devised in partnership with the customer
  • Full visibility of all assets via web-based track and trace
