Wincanton has renewed its contract to provide fuel distribution for Valero Energy Ltd.

The new deal will run for five years, which will take the working relationship between the companies beyond 25 years. Wincanton will manage transportation from Valero’s network of UK terminals to more than 700 Texaco-branded sites across the country.

It will transport over two billion litres of ground fuel each year, making around 200 deliveries every day.

Wincanton will also control Vendor Management Inventory on behalf of Valero. As part of this, Wincanton will monitor and control stocks at key retail sites across the country, enhancing customer service and stock availability.

As well as ground fuel, the deal covers both the delivery of aviation fuel to East Midlands Airport on behalf of Valero and Ethanol distribution across the UK.

Chris Fenton, Managing Director of Industrial and Transport at Wincanton, said:

"We’ve been working with Valero for more than 25 years. In that time, we’ve built up a strong partnership with Valero and developed a real understanding of the needs of its customers.

"As a business, our fuel distribution experience and safety record mean that we can deliver solutions which meet Valero’s needs in full, providing a platform for further fuel distribution growth across the UK."
