Wincanton wins Asda renewal

Wincanton has renewed a contract with Asda to provide transport and warehousing for the next three years. This contract renewal is extending a 16-year relationship which dates back to 2005.

The contract will see a continuation of operations at four key Asda sites in Doncaster, Larne, Rochdale and Wigan, UK; covering frozen, chilled and ambient groceries, and general merchandise nationwide. The contract employs 1,216 Wincanton staff and 58 vehicles.

Ian Keilty, Managing Director of Retail and Consumer at Wincanton, said, “Asda is a much valued, long-term Wincanton customer and our relationship stretches back over a decade. Our collaborative working bond has allowed us to build a stronger understanding of the Asda supply chain. We’ve used this knowledge to assist Asda in unlocking new value from its supply chain operations, which is evidence of our successful partnership.
