Milk, water, food goods, petroleum products and industrial chemicals may be very different liquids, but they all require specialist bulk transport. Founded in 1925 as a specialist in the transportation of dairy goods, Wincanton has close to 100 years’ experience in the specialist world of tankers.
Our bulk liquid transportation solutions form a vital part of essential supply chains across the UK. From fuel at forecourts and airfields, through to water supplies at festivals and the movement of hazardous goods, we are leaders in these complex areas.
Operational efficiencies are delivered by:
- Dedicated and shared user secure storage solutions for hazardous goods under Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) regulations.
- A skilled and experienced workforce, including 450 ADR certified drivers and 250 drivers trained in handling food products.
- One of the most substantial and advanced bulk transport fleets in the UK, incorporating 500 ADR tankers, 230 bulk food grade tankers and 60 powder tankers.
- Wincanton’s Winsight platform, which brings together a suite of technologies including planning and optimisation; fleet management and compliance; telematics and fleet safety; and cloud-based point of delivery capture and data analysis.
We know bulk liquid transportation is unique. Because of this, our solutions are not 'off the shelf’. We work with you to understand your needs and challenges, and meet these with carefully tailored services based around flexibility. Whether it’s whole or part solutions, we offer planning, scheduling and replenishment options to meet your individual needs.
Our committment to working in close collaboration with our long-term partners is evidenced by our relationships with organisations as varied as Valero Energy, Phillips 66, and Müller Milk & Ingredients.
