Logistical support for GGBS grows

Francis Flower’s logistics partner, Turners, has added 18 new vehicles to its fleet to help support the production of GGBS at our Scunthorpe plant.

The new vehicles (a mixture of DAF XF and CF tractor units) will carry out a variety of tasks, including tramping and day deliveries from Scunthorpe. 

The Francis Flower delivery service will handle 1.3 million tonnes of product this year, with deliveries going to sites all over the UK. Delivering such large quantities of product promptly and efficiently is greatly assisted by Turners’ high quality vehicle fleet, which links directly to the Francis Flower IT system; providing real time data on delivery weights and vehicle waiting times.

“We have had a long term relationship with Turners and it’s all about reliability and performance for us,” explains Mick Stovin, commercial director at Francis Flower in Scunthorpe. “The new DAF fleet is the icing on the cake. We know they are a reliable truck and they look great when they turn up at our customers: that all reflects well on the business as a whole.”
