"Wincanton has created significant economies
of scale by combining our transport operations
with those of over thirty other retailers and
manufacturers. This has achieved a significant
reduction in costs and carbon emissions and
will be transformational for retailers.”
Dave McKinlay, Supply Chain Director, WHSmith.
Delivering a breakthrough in collaboration
For almost 20 years Wincanton has been helping WHSmith to drive cost efficiencies through optimising their transport network.
Key benefits delivered include:
- Extensive collaboration with other high street deliveries through the use of Wincanton white fleet vehicles.
- Reduction in transport costs and road miles through the introduction of double deck trailers.
- Reduction in delivery frequency from 5 per week to 1-4 per week, with no dip in on-shelf availability.
- Reduction in fleet size and costs through the introduction of unattended overnight deliveries.
Wincanton continues to work with WHSmith to drive transport efficiencies, sharing vehicle space and introducing innovation where possible.
