Logistics redundancies revealed at Lincolnshire cement plant

Building materials supplier CEMEX has informed proposed redundancies of the cement logistics employees based at its South Ferriby Cement Plant.

Following the recent decision to mothball the South Ferriby Cement Plant the business committed to undertaking a review of the fleet provision based at this location.

As a result of this mothballing the footprint has been moved to CEMEX locations at Rugby, Tilbury and Hull. Consequently, CEMEX has concluded that it is no longer financially viable to continue to operate the fleet at South Ferriby.

CEMEX is proposing the redundancies of the cement logistics employees at South Ferriby during the third quarter of 2020.

If this proposal proceeds it is anticipated that CEMEX will be using its existing contracted and non-dedicated haulage provisions and this will result in redundancies of 25 cement tanker drivers and one manager at the South Ferriby cement logistics depot.

The company said: “We understand this news will be a further disappointment to the local community following the previous announcements about mothballing the plant.

“Thank you for your ongoing support – we remain proud to have been such a valued part of the community.

“We would like to reiterate that all commitments to the local community will be maintained, including the work agreed as part of the Environment Agency flood protection project.”

CEMEX will shortly commence a process of collective consultation with affected employees. A final decision will be announced when complete.
