Following a full review and tender process, Albalact – Romania's largest dairy company – has renewed its contract with Tibbett Logistics to provide delivery of dairy products on key routes across the country. Tibbett Logistics has worked with Albalact since 2014, providing temperature-controlled transportation between principal factory and customer locations.
Romania-based Tibbett Logistics is the leading independent logistics service provider in South East Europe, and is a member of the UK-based Keswick Enterprises Group. It is using its own recently renewed fleet of multi-temperature trailers in its own colours to provide time-critical road transport services to Albalact.
Roxana Cocuz, Head of Transport at Tibbett Logistics, said: “We are very happy to have extended our business relationship with Albalact. We support a wide variety of retail, FMCG and other clients with ambient, chilled and frozen distribution in Romania, and Albalact is a key customer for our time-critical temperature-controlled road transport service.”
Lucian Popa, Supply Chain Director at Albalact, added: “Tibbett Logistics has provided an excellent service to us, and responded well to our tender. I am very pleased to have extended our cooperation, and that they can continue as one of our critical providers of transport.”
Albalact has been a force in the Romanian dairy industry for more than 40 years, and has led the country's milk sector since 2008 with its popular Zuzu brand. Based in Oiejdea in the heart of the country, Albalact is part of the France-based Lactalis Group, the number one dairy group in the world.
Tibbett Logistics specialises in providing intermodal logistics and extensive supply chain management services to the automotive, DIY, food & grocery, textiles, retail and other FMCG sectors across Romania and elsewhere in South East Europe. As well as operating a total of 111 250 sq metres (1,200,000 sq ft) of Class A warehousing at 14 locations, and employing over 1250 skilled personnel, it has a distribution fleet comprising tilt trailers, double- and triple-chamber refers and container chassis – along with its own intermodal rail wagons. In May, the business announced it was in the process of completing the renewal of its entire trailer fleet.
