Homeware supplier Loaf has awarded a new multichannel contract for nationwide storage and distribution services to Wincanton. The contract, which Wincanton will run from its multi-user warehouse in Greenford, West London, involves the 3PL’s two-man “white glove” operation making deliveries of items including beds and sofas to Loaf customers across the UK. Wincanton will also oversee distribution of individual packages using its order management and parcel carrier solution.
Bibby Distribution has had its contract with retail and corporate interiors fitter and supplier Havelock extended by one year.
Wincanton has reported a strong set of financial results for the year to 31 March 2020, with revenue up 5% to £1.2bn and pre-tax profits up 7% to £52.9m, driven by a 26% rise in revenue from its retail grocery division which picked up a sizeable contract with Morrisons in June 2019 that has just been extended.
Fowler Welch is set to take over transport operations at Dairy Crest’s national distribution centre (NDC) in Nuneaton from June.
