Abbey Logistics has signed a multi-year contract renewal with British Sugar to provide bulk transport across the UK.



The two parties have worked together since 2016.

As the sole processor of the UK’s beet sugar crop, British Sugar processes eight million tonnes of sugar beet that produces around 1.4 million tonnes of sugar each year. As a result Abbey Logistics provides 350 bulk tanker deliveries per week to major food and beverage manufacturers.

Stewart Dickson, Logistics Contracts Manager, British Sugar, said: “We knew from previous hauliers that the KPIs we set Abbey Logistics were challenging, but we also knew that by adopting the right approach and working closely with us, they were achievable.”

Abbey Logistics Business Development Director Mike Ellis said: “Abbey’s contract team together with British Sugar’s logistics team have worked shoulder to shoulder over the past four years and delivered every objective we set out to achieve.

“The success of the two teams working together demonstrates the importance of a collaborative approach to transport operations of this scale and proves how effective working in partnership can be in delivering on objectives and providing the best possible service to customers.”
