Fast Forward Paves the Way!

A French-based manufacturer of concrete additives has confirmed the appointment of Fast Forward International as their preferred logistics supplier for importation and distribution of their products throughout the UK. The product portfolio includes accelerators, retarders and plasticisers used to enhance the performance of concrete in differing conditions and specialist applications.

In a deal which has seen them switch from importing their products in bulk tankers to an IBC-based distribution system, Fast Forward International will operate a new telesales and stock control facility on their customer’s behalf. “With less than 24 hours transit time from the factory in France to our depot in Kent” says Operations Director, Lee Davison, “we can react very quickly to our customer’s needs. A buffer stock of over 150,000 litres held at Sittingbourne means just about every eventuality is covered. Taking responsibility for the supply of this customer’s products from factory to end user means they can devote more resources to developing their core business, and this has led to greater efficiency throughout the system”. A rock-solid partnership indeed!
