Wincanton has won a three-year contract with Roper Rhodes, a supplier of bathroom furniture and products, to provide a dedicated delivery solution. Using its IT knowledge and in-cab technology, Wincanton will handle all stages of the transport of goods from Roper Rhodes’ 200,000 sq ft distribution centre in Portbury, Bristol, to customers across the UK.
The contract marks Roper Rhodes’ movement away from a shared network delivery solution to a dedicated transportation operation provided by Wincanton. The operation includes the supply and management of a fleet of Roper Rhodes branded vehicles, scheduling and optimisation of deliveries, as well as the training and development of dedicated delivery teams.
Paul Durkin, Director of Home & eFulfilment, Wincanton, commented on the new contract: “By moving to a dedicated transport operation, Roper Rhodes can be sure of an efficient and reliable delivery proposition which meets the growing expectations of their customers.”
