From this October, logistics for Aggregate Industries’ Concrete Products division will transfer to Eddie Stobart’s manufacturing and industrial business unit. The new five-year contract, awarded following an extensive tender, will see the haulier carrying Bradstone, Charcon and Masterblock products from 14 UK sites using a combination of specialist curtain-siders, flat trailers and mechanical off-load vehicles.

This strategic partnership with Eddie Stobart will enable Aggregate Industries to provide a more personalised and flexible service.

The varied nature of the work requires a very flexible haulage partner with specialist resources and equipment – a key reason why Eddie Stobart was chosen. Eddie Stobart’s intelligent planning strategies and systems and transparent operation are supported by the very latest in-cab telematics systems, providing industry-leading accuracy and real time load information. This enables Aggregate Industries to monitor arrivals and deliveries for customers and better plan on-site schedules for increased efficiency.
