Logistics

Over the last 90 years, Longcliffe has built up a reputation for reliability and efficiency. Our supply chain and transport operations are of critical importance, delivering large volumes of high purity product every day, with 95% of production scheduled for delivery the following day, if not the same day. Our experienced sales and logistics teams ensure a fast and reliable service in all weathers, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day if necessary.

UK-wide Distribution

Our fleet of over 40 bulk tankers and tippers offers full national road transport coverage for the timely delivery of our products. All vehicles are fitted with the latest GPS tracking technology offering real-time delivery information and helping to ensure delivery targets are met on time.

Our vehicles are solely dedicated to supplying our products and, where necessary, a vehicle can be completely dedicated to carrying only calcium carbonate – helping to avoid any risk of contamination. By carrying out all of our own vehicle maintenance and repair, we can reliably meet the tightest of delivery deadlines.

Delivering and Off-Loading Safely

Health and safety is paramount at Longcliffe, therefore, we provide all of our drivers with on-going training to ensure duties are performed in a safe manner while demonstrating exemplary behaviour and attitude.
Our drivers have a powerful sense of responsibility to their customers often delivering to the same clients year on year, building strong, long-term relationships.

Transport Sustainability

Longcliffe is wholly committed to investing and maintaining a modern transport fleet that meets and often exceeds relevant industry regulations, such as TASCC, and emissions standards. We take advantage of up-to-date GPS management systems to optimise fleet efficiency, safety and fuel consumption, demonstrating our commitment to operating our distribution network in the most sustainable way possible.
In 2015 we won Smaller Fleet Operator of the year  in the LCRS (Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme) awards. The LCRS award scheme is an industry initiative to record, report and reduce carbon emissions from freight transport organised by the FTA (Freight Transport Association).
