G.A.P Convenience Distribution – part of the James Hall & Co group – has won an award for its flexible support to fuel station operator BP.
Preston-based G.A.P was named ‘Best Supply Chain of 2021’ at BP’s annual Supplier Awards after a rapid response to support the direct distribution of Unipart screen wash into BP’s national network of 330 company-owned service stations.
During the summer, G.A.P’s Unipart team worked overnight to help alleviate supply chain issues.
G.A.P is one of the country’s leading providers of non-food items to the convenience retail sector. General manager Brandon Howard commented: “The G.A.P team were faced with a demanding project with a very tight turnaround, but the team adjusted very quickly and delivered when it mattered.
“The positive outcomes we secured during the summer in supporting BP would not have been achieved had the entire G.A.P business not worked closely with BP as supply partners and I’m delighted we have been recognised for a thoroughly professional job.”
