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.

The basket of MT shares has only drifted northwards by 7p in the past seven days. But growth at the rate of a penny a day is a fair old shift for a traditionally quiet time of year in the road transport industry, indicating that there is a lot of sentiment backing the success of Britain’s transport firms.
