Cans, Bottles, Cartons & Drums

Our packaging experience extends beyond the paper and board sector to include cans, cartons, films and drums. We understand the importance of providing a flexible and agile solution that can deliver JIT to manufacturing plants and can cope with sudden and unexpected changes in demand. Our national scale allows us to flex resources to meet our customers’ needs ensuring that service is maintained across 24/7.

We move empty cans from manufacturers to the soft drinks and brewing industry for filling, or into one of the Bibby Distribution managed dedicated can warehouses for onward delivery to customers nationwide. At Bibby Distribution, we are responsible for the on-time delivery of almost four million cans each year - almost a third of all the cans used in the UK!

In addition to the aluminium cans sector, we deliver a wide variety of packaging materials including plastic food and drink cartons, plastic films and even steel drums that are used in the oil and lubricants sector. The demands on Bibby Distribution are consistent in terms of needing the assurance of supply and a competitive commercial offer in a sector where margins are typically low.

The Bibby Distribution aim is to maximise supply chain efficiency for our customers in this sector. Our experience and knowledge gained over 30 years of serving the packaging sector helps our Account Managers work closely with customers to remove inefficiency and drive value in the supply chain through the identification and delivery of continuous improvement initiatives to reduce costs and complexity.
