Eddie Stobart has wrestled a £15m Cemex contract from Wincanton after promising to deliver it using fewer sub-contractors. Stobart will pick up the work, which Wincanton has held since 2013, from next month, after which it will deliver packed cement from Cemex production sites to customers around the UK. Cemex told MT that it had changed service provider because Eddie Stobart was able to move a much higher proportion of goods with its own fleet rather than via sub-contracted vehicles. […]
Wincanton has secured two new distribution contracts: a five-year deal with military equipment supplier General Dynamics UK and a three-year contract renewal with Adidas.
Eddie Stobart Logistics has purchased The Pallet Network (TPN) for £52.8m.
Wincanton has appointed James Hurrell as managing director for grocery.
