Bibby brings clarity to Westmill transport operations

Significant improvements in delivery performance, transport efficiencies and operational collaborations are the key benefits reported by Westmill Foods just six months after awarding its transport operations contract to Bibby Distribution

Westmill Foods, one of Europe’s largest specialist food companies, supplying the ethnic wholesaler market, moved away from an in-house transport function in preference of a logistics partner which could identify pressure points affecting customer service, and help to realise inter-site synergies between its three nationwide facilities.

The improvements that Westmill is seeing in delivery performance, transport efficiencies and operational collaborations are evidence of a large company which can offer an individualised service through structured consolidation and data-led processes.

Bibby Distribution manages inter-site stock and raw material movements, as well as distribution to customers across the UK on behalf of Westmill Foods, from its Northern and South Eastern planning centres in Elland, West Yorkshire and Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire respectively. This incorporates the movement of all goods from Westmill facilities in Trafford Park, Selby and Enfield.

A clear, co-ordinated and real-time view of delivery performance, including late-running, damages and loading issues, are essential in addressing potential problems before they arise.

Bibby offers Westmill comprehensive reports on a daily basis which are broken down by individual site, so there is absolute visibility of the status of every single consignment in the network.

Bibby Distribution took ownership of nine Westmill Foods-liveried semi-trailers in March 2012 when the contract commenced, all of which are now integrated into the Company’s fleet operating out of its Hoddesdon depot
