Suttons extends Nippon Gases contract for a further three years

Suttons Tankers has been awarded the Nippon Gases contract for a further three year term from September.
The nationwide logistics provider has held the relationship with Nippon Gases for over 20 years, transporting bulk carbon dioxide across the UK, serving major blue-chip customers.
Suttons have a strong focus on delivering excellent levels of service and have demonstrated its ability to flex up in peak periods of demand, due to its strategically located depot network, extensive fleet, and large pool of cross-trained drivers.
The transportation of bulk CO2 requires extensive technical knowledge and training, of which Suttons provides its drivers with to ensure the highest levels of safety. Suttons draws upon its in-house industry experts in fleet, safety and driver training to ensure the highest levels of compliance for Nippon Gases and its other customers.
Suttons have agreed a capital investment of £3.5 million (€4.1 million) to bring 23 new units onto the contract. The new units will aid better fuel efficiency, reduce downtime, and improve driver comfort.
Michael Cundy, managing director at Suttons Tankers, commented: “I am delighted that we have been given the opportunity to further strengthen our partnership with Nippon Gases.
“The renewal is very much a reflection of the hard work that goes into the operations from our pool of drivers and Contract Team.”
Carl Woollins, managing director at Nippon Gases UK & Ireland, commented: “Working with Suttons brings stability to our business, with reliable transport, ensuring deliveries are made on time and in full.  Our business can’t fulfil our clients’ requirements without an exceptional transport service.”
