Bibby moves into Poland

[ June 4, 2015   //   ]

Bibby Distribution, one of the top ten UK logistics providers, is expanding its European operations to support food manufacturer Kellogg’s increased production capacity in Poland.
Bibby Distribution has been operating the Kellogg distribution centre (DC) in Kutno, Central Poland since July 2014, supporting a Pringles factory located on the same site and manages exports to Europe, Middle East and Africa. The Bibby Distribution-operated facility has capacity for 8,000 pallets, 200 yards from Kellogg’s factory.
Bibby says that as Kellogg expands its operations at Kutno, it is “working to ensure it can provide the flexibility required to continue to support this growth.”
Philip Winterhalder, European Transport Manager, Kellogg, says: “We originally selected Bibby Distribution for our Kutno DC operation due to its competitive proposal and flexible approach. They had a previous track record of delivering flexible solutions through the operations they provide for us in the UK and we are pleased to have seen the same great service at Kutno.”
Bibby Distribution brings empty Pringles cans to the factory and returns filled loads to the DC for full inventory management, including perpetual inventory counts and quality inspections. Bibby Distribution then dispatches finished product to destination.
