DBL in healthcare logistics contract

Have your say

DBL Logistics has secured a multi-million pound deal with a leading UK manufacturer of healthcare products.

The Sheffield-based haulage company is the new dedicated transport contractor for Robinson Healthcare, in Worksop.

DBL already transports more than 15,000 pallets annually for Robinson, which manufactures single-use products for medical professionals, pharmacists, distributors, retailers and consumers across the country.

The new deal will continue the successful partnership between the two companies which began in 2010 and allow DBL Logistics to remain the exclusive distributor of palletised goods for Robinson across mainland UK.

Robinson Healthcare was founded in 1839 when John Robinson, a retail chemist in Chesterfield, set up a business making pill boxes. The company started manufacturing surgical dressings to meet the demand created by the Crimean War and pioneered the manufacture of medical cotton wool.

Today, Robinson Healthcare continues to be a pioneer with the introduction of single use surgical instruments in 2002 and remains a market leader in the sector.
