International energy logistics provider Peterson has been awarded a major logistics contract from Sellafield Limited to support operations in West Cumbria, England.
The 4-year contract will see Peterson continue as the operator of the Control Tower and Security and Distribution Centre (S&DC) at Lillyhall on behalf of Sellafield Limited. The scope of work includes managing inbound logistics, warehousing and secure distribution of goods.
Jason Hendry, Regional Director at Peterson, says, “This contract award reflects our team’s hard work over the last 4 years and demonstrates our commitment to the area and the sector. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished to date working alongside the Sellafield team and look ahead to continue delivering a valuable service and growing our business in line with Peterson’s strategy for 2025.”
Andrew Barnes, Senior Buyer from Sellafield Limited, comments, “Peterson has been Sellafield’s logistics service provider for the previous 4 years continually exceeding service and customer requirements. We are thrilled to continue the collaborative relationship delivering benefits such as; increased visibility of inbound logistics, control and coordination of deliveries, reduced commercial vehicles on the roads and cost savings.”
Peterson has been the main operator of the site since March 2016 and has worked closely with Sellafield to develop a number of technologies to improve operational efficiencies in delivering goods including safety and security protocols.
In 2019, Peterson’s track and trace technology, developed in collaboration with Sellafield, enhanced operations and resulted in fuel savings of GBP 75,000 for the wider supply chain and a reduction of over 190,000 kg in CO2 emissions. Last year also saw Peterson Lillyhall successfully achieve ISO-9001, 45001 and 14001 certifications.
