EFP has signed an exclusive three-year logistics services agreement with local company C Butt Ltd to supply all its national freight services from Northampton manufacturing site.
With increasing pressure on logistical operations driven by demand for thermally efficient materials by the Construction industry, EFP required a new logistics partner that could optimise onsite workflows to maintain both a high OTIF delivery standard and service levels for a growing customer base.
By joining forces with logistics expert C Butt Ltd, EFP has benefited from optimisation initiatives which have accelerated the way haulage is handled onsite. These initiatives have ensured our readiness to keep pace with the demand for superior insulation materials as the Construction and HVAC sectors adapt to meet the revised building regulations thermal performance targets, in line with the Future Homes Standard.
With the environmental impact of operations at the heart of both EFP and C Butt Ltd, the co-location of both businesses on the same industrial estate is just one of the environmental benefits yielded to logistical operations. C Butt Ltd has optimised deliveries by upscaling trailer capacity and reduced road miles through geographically scheduled deliveries. Their permanent on-site presence also enables real-time monitoring of trailer movements to streamline loading and unloading.
Ken Dyer, C Butt Ltd Transport Supervisor and On-Site EFP representative said: “When dealing with numerous moving parts and a small goods in/out loading bay, freight management can present its challenges however over the last 6 months we’ve seen less congestion at pinch points and better vehicle utilisation.”
With both parties looking forward to a successful working partnership moving forward, the new contract was officially signed in October.
“We are convinced that C Butt are the right logistics partner to support our growth ambitions and this contract is a key part of our commitment to keeping pace with the increased demand and delivery of thermally efficient materials expected in the coming years”
