Widnes logistics specialist Suttons Tankers has won a five-year distribution contract with global diesel exhaust fluid producer Yara.
Vehicles from Sutton’s 700-strong UK fleet will carry Yara’s AdBlue product, a clear non-toxic liquid, across the UK from depots in Scunthorpe, Immingham, Tilbury, Widnes and Gretna.
AdBlue, sold by Yara under the Air1-brand, is a diesel exhaust fluid used in vehicles with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to reduce harmful gases being released into the atmosphere.
Michael Cundy, managing director of Suttons Tankers said: “We already have a strong relationship with Yara and look forward to further delivering efficiencies for the business. The innovations and efficiencies of Suttons’ UK wide depot network and an ability to respond quickly to Yara’s future needs were instrumental in helping us secure this significant new contract for our tanker division.”
Suttons operates in the UK with a fleet vehicles focused on the chemicals, gas and fuel sectors and internationally with key business centres in New Jersey, Widnes, Antwerp, Ludwigshafen, Kuantan, Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo.
Paul Norman, UK and Ireland manager for the Air1 business at Yara, added: “As the largest AdBlue manufacturer with a worldwide presence, we needed a partner that is able to deliver a safe and reliable service for our market leading Air1 product.
“This latest partnership with Suttons sees a reduction in mileage for our fleet. This not only reduces cost, but also improves customer service which is a key focus of ours. It also has a positive impact on our carbon footprint.”
