Supply Chain Partners
Lucite International has worked with Interbulk (formerly known as United Transport or UTT) since the early 1980s delivering tailor-made customer supply packages around the EMEA region. Working together to deliver often innovative solutions, we have been able to provide cost benefits for our customers, while maintaining a robust, reliable supply chain.
Sustainability has long been an important factor for both companies and has led to us working on intermodal routes, pay load increases and transport by water to achieve progress in this respect. Our systems link directly to Interbulk’s own to ensure seamless processing of customer orders in optimised time scales.
Interbulk is a global company, which transports both liquid and dry bulk loads. The company’s Liquid Bulk Division operates the third largest tank container fleet in the world. In the UK they are market leaders and globally are top of the game in safety and quality. With OTIF continuously averaging above 99% per annum,
Both companies have their eyes on supply chain security and risk management, which are increasingly becoming key areas to prevent disruption to customers.
Our relationship with Suttons dates back to when Lucite International’s acrylic business was part of ICI. Suttons has over 80 years of experience in transport, storage and bulk logistics worldwide with a long term commitment and strong focus on the distribution of bulk hazardous goods.
With an exemplary safety record and a safety culture that is strongly embedded, Suttons has won many awards, including Winner of UK Safety in Operation Award 2001, 2005, 2008 and 2011. Suttons has made significant investment in its delivery vehicles to ensure our customers receive state of the art safety, efficiency and reduced carbon footprint impact.
