Widnes-based Suttons Tankers has been awarded a major 10-year contract for the transportation of bio-resources for Yorkshire Water.

The innovative logistics provider, part of global firm Suttons Group, was appointed by Yorkshire Water to support them in delivering their commitment to industry regulator OFWAT to be the UK’s market-leading bio-resources provider by 2025.

A key indicator of trust for Yorkshire Water came from Suttons’ commitment to continuous improvement and an innovation-led operation throughout the contract.

It helps reduces Yorkshire Water’s environmental impact, resulting in nearly 10,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions saved each year.

Michael Cundy, Suttons Tankers managing director, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract with Yorkshire Water which demonstrates the divisional strategy of expanding into alternative sectors.

“We are looking forward to driving efficiencies for Yorkshire Water and contributing to their commitment to OFWAT.”

Ben Raistrick, at Yorkshire Water said: “Suttons Tankers’ ability to build a bespoke solution which added value to our business and drove efficiencies for our customers was a key factor when awarding them the contract.

“The agility and expertise of the team assured us that the operation would be safely carried out with service excellence.”

Suttons operates in the UK with a fleet of more than 700 vehicles focused on the chemicals, gas and fuel sectors and internationally with key business centres in New Jersey, Widnes, Antwerp, Ludwigshafen, Kuantan, Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo.
