Logistics specialist Suttons Tankers has won a five-year contract with BOC, providing inter-branch trucking services for the movements of full and empty gas cylinders across the UK.

The new contract is due to go live in April 2021 where Suttons will operate on an 80% dedicated fleet model with 20% flex support provided by Suttons’ wider network.

This allows BOC to utilise additional trained drivers without over committing on core fleet, Suttons said.

Suttons is investing in the procurement of 30 new trucks as part of its commitment to provide BOC with the “best possible” equipment for the contract.

“We are delighted to announce this major contract win with BOC which is directly aligned to our growth strategy in the gas sector,” Michael Cundy, Managing Director of Suttons Tankers, said.

“We were able to be commercially competitive, while providing BOC with a compelling solution that met their requirements and was completely bespoke to their operation.” 

“This new business win also secures an extension on our other contracts with BOC, which is a credit to the Suttons employees who have been working on the propellant gas and pentanes contracts.”
