Suttons Tankers partner with Kier Highways Solutions to deliver 4 million litres of bitumen emulsion during surface dressing season

Suttons Tankers have supported Kier Highways Solutions, part of Kier Group, with the movement of bitumen emulsion for an eight-week summer campaign running from June to July.

Bitumen emulsion is used for road construction, maintenance, and repair work and is the substance that holds aggregate and asphalt to the road.

Kier Highways Solutions is a specialist bituminous materials manufacturer, surface treatment contractor and traffic management business – and required a trusted partner to transport its bitumen emulsion across its local authority and contractor clients.

Suttons were able to support Kier thanks to its nationwide depot network, large fleet, and cross trained pool of highly skilled drivers. The experienced operations team provided a consultative approach when it came to understanding the operation and best supporting Kier’s drivers.

Kier reported excellent levels of service during the campaign and reported all deliveries completed on time and in full. This is a credit to our drivers who put our customers first with everything they do.

Lee Draper, general manager, Kier Transportation: “Suttons has played an integral role in our supply chain this surface treatments season.

“By working with Suttons, we have benefited from enhanced flexibility to manage the peaks and troughs of emulsion demand.

“Transporting emulsion from Wymondham Plant, our bituminous materials production facility in Norfolk, to locations across the UK requires extensive stakeholder engagement and planning. Suttons has proved a valuable, collaborative partner, to deliver a seamless, high-quality service for our clients.”
