Leading FMCG manufacturer, ARYZTA, is to extend the scope of its relationship with pallet pooling expert LPR UK.
Headquartered in Switzerland, with operations across Europe, ARYZTA is one of the world’s leading suppliers of frozen baked goods. LPR has been appointed to provide 245,000 pallet movements per year – an increase of 45,000 over the previous arrangement. This means that even more of ARYZTA’s produce will now be transported on LPR’s distinctive red pallets. LPR’s high quality pallets and straightforward operations were the main factors in ARYZTA’s decision to increase the number of shipments.
John-Paul Seale, European procurement packaging lead at ARYZTA Bakeries Ireland, said: “We are extremely happy with the services LPR has provided so far. LPR’s communication and efficiency has been excellent and has really helped us maintain our high levels of quality and consistency. We have also been able to reduce CO2 emissions, thanks to the service provided by LPR; something incredibly important to the corporate values of ARYZTA.”
Adrian Fleming, regional manager of LPR UK and Ireland, added: “LPR prides itself on being able to provide high quality pallets and a reliable service to a wide range of clients. This increase in pallet movements from ARYZTA is a perfect demonstration of LPR’s commitment to its customers and a testament to our world-leading pallet pooling service.”
This contract extension is just one of a number of recent successes for LPR. The logistics specialist has announced an array of new business wins with high profile blue chip FMCG manufacturers, such as Nestlé and Kellogg’s, and has a number of exciting projects in the pipeline for 2016.
