BBP secures Virgin Trains East Coast supply contract Magazine
Hull’s BemroseBooth Paragon (BBP) has secured an ongoing contract to supply Virgin Trains East Coast with payroll services.
In addition, the company will also manage part of the warehousing and pick and pack for the company’s luggage labels.
BBP supplies magnetic tickets, smart enabled cards and print services for bus and rail operators throughout the UK.
It manages a number of contracts within the sector, providing all marketing storage and timetable distribution, as well as the manufacture and delivery of all rail and bus tickets to transport operators up and down the country.
BBP recently acquired Buralls InfoSmart, one of the few companies certified to produce ITSO smart cards in the UK.
Responsible for the supply of almost 1 billion magnetic stripe tickets for the UK train operating companies, this strategic acquisition will allow the business to launch ITSO approved smart products and services into the sector, further assisting the UK train operators to make a smooth transition from traditional to smart ticketing, as well as expanding the offering into the broader transportation sector.
