Board24 staff

Board24 has extended its contract with Bibby Distribution after the 3PL’s team showed both reliability and commitment to the work at hand.

Bibby Distribution has staff based at Board24’s Coalville and Preston depots, and deliver a maximum of 90 loads each day using 40 tractor units connected to high-cube trailers.

Board24 manufacturer boxes, corrugated packaging and sheet board. By working with Bibby Distribution it ensures its fleet operates with telematics, ensuring its drivers and workload can be tracked.

Richard McBride, managing director at Board24, said: “Our products need to be delivered at set times, so ensuring that happens without any delays is essential. Bibby Distribution knows exactly how we work and always get the job done.

“The team continually demonstrates that they can help us keep our promises to customers, as they have been doing since 2010.

“The high-cube trailers maximise how much can be carried, and by having Bibby Distribution staff based on our sites, we have immediate access to support and our operations run more efficiently.

“We work so closely together that any issues can be resolved in a matter of minutes before they become serious, and without affecting our overall service.”

Earlier this year Bibby Distribution recognised its safest and most skilled drivers, at its second annual Driver of the Year celebration.

Its telematics ensures it could track its drivers’ scores, and reward those with an incident-free track record, and those that had no tachograph infringements.

Board24 also recently praised it's staff, presenting 25-year service awards to 11 members of the team (pictured at the top).
