Wincanton secures five year logistics deal with Wilko

Wincanton has secured a five-year contract with homewares store Wilko.

The contract will see Wincanton manage all UK transport operations for Wilko from store replenishment to yard management and backhaul, making at least 100,000 deliveries per annum.

This represents an exciting new contract win with Wilko, which has grown to nearly 400 stores in the 85 years since it was established.

Additionally, Wincanton’s fleet maintenance arm, Pullman Fleet Services, will run two workshops to service the Wilko fleet and maximise vehicle availability, further improving efficiency.

Liam McElroy, Managing Director, retail and consumer of Wincanton said: “This represents an exciting new contract win with family owned business Wilko. Based on our experience and expertise in the retail sector, we will work in partnership with Wilko and will look at every opportunity to strengthen the retailer’s supply chain, brand and customer experience. I look forward to being part of Wilko’s continued success.”

Sean Toal, Chief Operating Officer of wilko said: “We’re pleased to award this major transport contract to Wincanton who demonstrated a real understanding of our business, after a robust tender process. Wincanton will help us with our commitments in delivering the best possible service for our customers, improve our CSR obligations and meet our current and future needs as we expand”
