From collecting goods from producers to delivering goods to customers, supply chains run on efficient and effective transport. Poor management can cause costs to spiral, lead to production delays or damage your reputation with customers. Get it right, and you have an agile and flexible supply chain responsive to operational needs.
Wincanton operates one of the largest shared user transport networks in the British Isles, incorporating some 3,500 trucks and 4,500 trailers, providing a diverse range of transport solutions for some of the UK’s leading retailers and manufacturers. From general haulage to palletised freight, mechanical offload to urban delivery, milk to petroleum products, our customers benefit from scalable solutions that drive efficiencies and eliminate waste.
Our shared user network provides true collaboration across the supply chain. As a result of our scale and extensive customer relationships with some of the biggest brands in the UK, our shared user network offers sustainable sharing space on a vehicle, maximising back-haul and reducing empty running. Sharing loads and distribution schedules significantly reduces the overheads associated with fleet operation and provides organisations with access to transport as and when they need it.
The shared user transport network is backed by Wincanton’s Transport Management Control Tower which plans all daily operations, maximises load fill, improves operational efficiency, all while creating a more sustainable transport solution.
