wincanton powder tanker

Wincanton has expanded its construction fleet after winning an eight-year contract with Hanson last year, which made it the first 3pl to move into the ready-mixed concrete sector.

The operator has bought 26 new Feldbinder tankers mounted on Mercedes-Benz chassis.

Wincanton delivers half a million cubic meters of ready-mixed contrete to Hanson's customers every year under the terms of the deal.

Four of the new tankers have capacity for 47m³ of bulk ash, while the remaining 22 can hold 36m³ of bulk cement or sand.

Chris Fenton, MD industrial and transport, said: “The construction sector makes up an important part of our business, in which we have established expertise and a track record of success.

"Our team is responsible for delivering varying materials to construction and building sites across the UK every day and as a result we have made, and will continue to make, investments across the business to support our growth and the increasing opportunities within the sector.”
