THE road haulage arm of Scunthorpe’s Clugston Group has hit the landmark figure of distributing more than two-billion litres of fuel.
Clugston Distribution Services only launched in 2012, as the wider business celebrated 75 years, and is now forecast to deliver more than 407 million litres of fuel this year, a new record for the high growth addition.
From a standing start it has become one of the top 10 fuel logistics companies in the UK.
Clugston Distribution director Tim Doggett said: “Since 2012, the bulk fuel sector has been an industry we have excelled in. Our expertise in delivering a quality and timely service to our customers, whilst understanding what can sometimes be a fluctuating market, has ensured steady progression and growth.
“We are also proud that all of our fuel logistics drivers are trained in house, allowing us to develop the importance of quality and customer service, ensuring our reputation as a leader in the field remains.
“This year has seen us invest in expanding our international services, with wide reaching logistics capabilities across road, air and sea. This investment complements our well established and reputable bulk fuel distribution service, providing us with further opportunities to work with our existing fuel customers on overseas projects.
“We are looking forward to reaching our next fuel logistics landmark over the coming years and developing further as a business within the sector.”
From humble beginnings, with four vehicles and two customers, Clugston Distribution now has a dedicated bulk fuel logistics fleet featuring 18 vehicles, 20 trailers, 32 drivers and two planners. From its three depots in Billingham in the North East, Scunthorpe and Upper Broughton in the East Midlands, the company services customers ranging from supermarkets, shipping companies and vehicle manufacturers, alongside independent fuel forecourts and suppliers across the country.
