DHL Supply Chain has taken over operations at Marks & Spencer’s Swindon DC, which was formerly managed by Wincanton.

A DHL spokeswoman said it took over operations at the site on 4 January. The contract involves the management of the Swindon site as well as the storage and distribution of general merchandise to M&S stores.

A spokesman for Wincanton confirmed it had formerly managed the Swindon site, but declined to comment further.

“We regularly review our suppliers to ensure we’re working with the right partner at the right site. We continue to work with Wincanton at other warehouses and they remain a key partner for us,” an M&S spokesman said.

Earlier this month the retailer revealed plans to cease operations at its Coventry DC, which is run by DHL. The DHL spokeswoman told that it currently manages seven sites for M&S in the UK.
