Wincanton and SaaS company team up to boost eFulfilment services


Wincanton and Virtualstock, a UK-based Software as a Service (SaaS) digital supply chain technology provider, have announced the details of a new strategic partnership. This move is a part of its new eFulfilment services, which includes partnerships with a number of innovative British technology companies.

Virtualstock provides a range of digital supply chain and marketplace solutions, enabling retailers to expand their online product range without the need to carry additional stock. Virtualstock’s platform delivers integrated “Supplier to Consumer” (S2C) fulfilment functionality, allowing one retailer to sell another retailer or supplier’s goods without having to stock or deliver them

Paul Durkin, Director for Home and eCommerce at Wincanton, said: “Rapid growth in online sales, coupled with new players in the technology market, is fundamentally changing the end customer experience for the better. This is putting retailers under real pressure to improve their customer service levels and, critically, to increase the breadth of their offer. By integrating Wincanton’s recently announced eFulfilment service with the Virtualstock platform, we’re able to expand retailers’ portfolios, without them having to hold stock.”
