Transport consortium Jigsaw has won its largest ever contract, with bottling giant Refresco.

The deal involves the transport and distribution of 200m cases of soft drinks and beverages annually, from 10 UK sites direct to customers and for warehousing.

Part of EV Cargo, Jigsaw companies including CM Downton and Sparks Transport will play key roles in the contract, as well as Palletforce for the distribution of smaller consignments.

Alongside a core fleet of more than 50 vehicles, Jigsaw said it will have an on-site logistics presence at two manufacturing sites with 45 staff moving across to its network under TUPE.

Jigsaw MD Andy Humpherson (pictured) said: “Securing the Refresco transport contract is a huge business win for Jigsaw and EV Cargo and a major milestone in our history.

“Our client offering has developed over the years and, as part of EV Cargo, we’re more than capable of competing with the large multinationals at the top of the managed transport sector.”
