The nationwide logistics operator with strategically placed depots and out-bases across the UK, part of global firm Suttons Group, were able to redeploy resources and materials within 48 hours of the request for transportation. Suttons’ urgency and ability to react to the dramatic increase in demand for hygiene products to support the NHS in combatting COVID-19 has also been recognised through its work with UK Distilleries.
With renowned levels of excellence in safety, Suttons proved to be a reliable and reputable partner to work with. The scale of Suttons’ fleet, network and resource enabled it to scale up at pace and reassure both the collection distillery and the customer, Grace Overseas, that their systems, procedures and equipment are capable of delivering.
Michael Cundy, Managing Director, Suttons Tankers said:
“This significant contract win with Grace Overseas sees the Suttons Tankers division, yet again, responding to and being proactive in redistributing our materials and efforts where they are needed most.
“Suttons Tankers are proud to contribute to the battle against coronavirus and this new contract emphasises our promise to Deliver Life’s Essentials Safely more than ever.”
Sarah Taylor, Managing Director at Grace Overseas said:
“As we navigate through the pandemic, the demand for hygiene products has increased substantially. The capacity to deliver the chemicals that go into these key products on time and within the high quality control measures is critical and Suttons proved that they are able to meet our demands.
“We look forward to working with Suttons on this contract and have been impressed with their efficiency and flexibility in catering to our needs.”
