Wincanton has won the kitchen and bathroom home delivery contract for across the South West of England, Midlands and part of Wales.
Wincanton will implement its own model of home deliveries. Items will be loaded onto ‘final delivery vehicles’ in Northampton, UK, which will then be moved to three parking locations operated by Wincanton where drivers will be swapped. This model ensures a new driver completes the rest of the delivery, allowing for a more flexible and effective service to customers’ homes.
Paul Durkin, Director, Home & eFulfilment at Wincanton, said, “We are delighted to be extending our partnership Wickes to enhance their kitchens and bathrooms customer experience and reduce the cost to serve. It is also a fantastic opportunity to further strengthen the successful relationship we have with Wickes through our recently renewed and highly-effective HIAB home delivery contract.”
