Flexible and cost effective multi-user storage facilities offer customers a quick and efficient way to go to market and a scalable space for growth.
Wincanton can provide scalable, flexible, shared warehousing to support your business's needs.
We have over 30 strategically located, shared user warehouses across the UK all offering fully flexible and cost-effective storage solutions. All our shared user sites are integrated with Wincanton’s wider supply chain infrastructure and provide a range of logistics solutions including storage, picking, co-packing and transport.
Whether our customers are seeking short, medium or long-term storage – to cope with seasonal fluctuations or a rapid change in business conditions – Wincanton is able to help meet the challenge by offering financial flexibility. We offer all our customers the same excellent level of service, whether the storage requirement is for 20 pallets or 2,000. Our charging mechanisms are designed to suit the customer, providing pay-as-you-go storage, flexibly priced per pallet or square foot. We can also provide separate pricing structures for handling and management.
Our local management and operational teams are experienced in managing a wide array of value-added services, including wet and dry bonded storage and duty management, co-packing, reworking, inventory management, and regional consolidation.
Our sites are available for immediate occupation, and our unrivalled implementation pedigree ensures that our customers experience no interruption to their business.
To increase speed to market and minimise upfront investment, Wincanton, in conjunction with Manhattan Associates, has developed a warehouse management system (WMS) specifically for use in our shared user sites. This flexible application provides all the core functionality of a large-scale WMS including inventory management, item tracking and performance reporting, but takes away the burden and costs of a large-scale system implementation.
Complete supply chain logistics for retailers of fashion, health and beauty products, lifestyle and leisure, and consumer electronics.
Complete supply chain logistics for manufacturers to the food and drink sector.
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.
