Rolawn signs up to key strategic logistics partnership

Trade News / 11th December 2019

In line with short and long-term growth plans, Rolawn is delighted to announce a new strategic partnership with multi-national logistics provider, CM Downton.

 

 

As the UK’s leading turf grower and supplier of market-leading topsoil and bark products, Rolawn has a reputation for carefully managed operating systems, including timely and efficient distribution of its products, and this latest announcement serves as a reminder of their unwavering commitment to meeting and exceeding customer needs.

Rolawn’s Managing Director, Paul Dawson explains the thinking behind the decision: “Our existing distribution system has worked extremely well over the years, however as we continue to grow, we need a partner who can provide us not only with the quality of service our customers have come to expect, but also with the availability of vehicles especially at peak times. As a result, we have entered into a contract with C M Downton Ltd to provide us with a haulage service to meet our requirements both now and into the future.”

CM Downton is a highly successful private logistics firm that combines the values of a family business with the capacity and scale of a major multi-national logistics provider. Downton operates 700 tractor units and 1,800 trailers out of 15 distribution hubs across the UK and will utilise the latest technology to enhance load-fill and deliver efficiencies during peak seasonal volumes.

Zac Brown, CM Downton operations director, said: “Working in partnership with Rolawn, we aim to develop a solution to help increase tonnage per load and drive efficiencies within the supply chain. Downton has the benefit of a robust national network, which will help manage seasonal volume peaks to ensure we retain and build upon Rolawn’s exceptional levels of service.”
