Wincanton can offer a full supply chain distribution transport network across the UK and Ireland which is flexible and sustainable.
Wincanton can offer a full supply chain distribution transport network, as well as urban delivery network for high streets and home delivery, general haulage, palletised transport solutions, along with dedicated bespoke or specialist transport requirements, shipping and freight forwarding services worldwide.
Operating out of four regional transport centres, Wincanton provides distribution services to a broad range of the UK’s leading retailers and manufacturers. Our transport management system and in-cab technology provides national visibility of all orders and transport movements, allowing us to provide the most cost effective, efficient and sustainable transport plan for both our own fleets and those of our customers.
Due to our scale and extensive customer relationships we demonstrate a unique ability to deliver true collaboration across the supply chain. This might be sharing space on a vehicle, combining customers to maximise back-haul or operating a fully integrated road haulage fleet on behalf of multiple customers. Whichever the collaborative solution we implement, all allow a significant reduction in overhead, fleet and operating costs, whilst ensuring a responsive, agile and flexible supply chain.
Through our scale we have joined together retail partners to provide a flexible, networked solution for high street deliveries. Sharing loads and distribution schedules, we are able to provide considerable cost savings and efficiencies of scale through a collaborative road transport solution.
Working across the grocery industry, with both the major retailers and manufacturers, we are perfectly positioned to facilitate collaboration between the two.
Wincanton has vast experience in the design, implementation and management of supply chain solutions for the construction and building sectors.
Put simply, our ambition is to be recognised as the best in our chosen markets, with a reputation for delivering service excellence and value to our customers every day. Through our experience, we know that every logistics solution is different. We work closely with our customers to understand their markets so that we can tailor solutions that fit their specific requirements and suit their brand.
Wincanton has gained considerable expertise of transferring multiple sites across complex geographies and built excellent relationships with a number of trade unions. We use a tried and tested approach to TUPE, which ensures colleagues are transferred with respect and integrity, supported by an open communication process.
We help our people to support our customers by delivering the highest standards in safety. Our priority is to safeguard the well-being of our people, our customers and the wider public through ongoing health and safety education at every level of the business.
Wincanton has created an in-house IT team responsible for product and services deployment and technology management with well proven and established corporate governance processes.
Our transformation success is built on the tight integration between all of the teams involved in the change: change management, technology, operations, commercial and HR, allied to robust methodology.
