We’re proud to be selected as a trusted partner through this process and the contract further underlines our commitment and experience in the Manufacturing, Industrial and Bulk sector.”
Tarmac will use Eddie Stobart’s fleet to help distribute bulk and packed cement to customers in the South East of England. The new regional model will be rolled out with support from Eddie Stobart and will help Tarmac to provide a localised service with enhanced resilience, flexibility, service, cost and safety for its customers.

Our new regional model and strengthened network capability means we’re able to offer a better, more flexible service to meet customer requirements and we’re delighted to be working with Eddie Stobart and our other regional distribution partners going forwards.”
