Eddie Stobart is a leading logistics and supply chain organisation in the UK. The business was initially formed in 1970 by its eponymous founder Edward Stobart, and went on to become, and continues to be, one of the UK’s most well-known companies in the supply chain sector. It is recognised for its high levels of service and benefits from a significant base of long term relationships with blue chip customers.
From its headquarters in Warrington, operating some 2,200 vehicles, 3,800 trailers and 24 distribution centres throughout the UK and Europe, Eddie Stobart provides its services to a range of national and international customers. With many of these, Eddie Stobart has had a long standing relationship for more than ten years. One of Eddie Stobart’s key differentiators is its pay-as-you-go, scale enabled, shared-user network approach which maximises fleet and warehouse utilisation, allowing Eddie Stobart to provide its customers with cost effective supply chain solutions. This flexibility, together with IT-supported network planning, allows Eddie Stobart to reduce empty vehicle miles, thus improving utilisation levels to above 86%, compared with the industry average of 71%.
