Palletforce member JBT makes special deliveries to mark 20th anniversary

Scotish logistics firm and Palletforce member JBT has celebrated its 20th anniversary by delivering sweet treats to its customers.

JBT, which has six depots across Scotland, marked two decades in business by delivering ice cream to the customers, whose support has been key to the firm’s longevity.

"We have a number of companies who have been with us for our entire lifetime and that is something we are extremely proud of," said Robert Gordon, Director of JBT.

"When it came to celebrating our 20th anniversary we wanted to reach out to the people who work at our customer bases and to thank them for their support."

JBT was formed by a management buy-out of part of a larger company and currently runs a fleet of 70 vehicles and 140 trailers from its depots in Bathgate, Aberdeen, Lerwick, Inverness and Kirkwall.

The company sees its niche as its geographical location which allows it to offer high quality service to the north of Scotland and the isles.

As a member of Palletforce, the UK and Europe’s leading palletised distribution network, JBT is part of a network of over 100 depots which also enables it to meet customer requirements for UK-wide coverage.

It is also able to offer 350,000 sq ft of warehousing – something it did not offer at all when the company first started – which has been rated as British Retail Consortium standard and works with a number of blue chip companies and customers in industries including retail, packaging, healthcare and automotive.

"Our focus for the future will continue to be setting the standard for distribution in Scotland," said Robert.

"IT will also be a priority and we will be focussing on our infrastructure and systems to ensure we are working seamlessly and efficiently with customers."

Michael Conroy, Chief Executive of Palletforce, said: "JBT has been part of Palletforce almost from the first days of the network and we are proud to have such a well-established and highly respected firm as a member.

"We are delighted to see them celebrating their 20th anniversary with their customers."
