Wincanton has published details of its Britvic contract win, revealed by Motortransport.co.uk last month.
The switch saw Britvic end its relationship with Eddie Stobart, which took on distribution for the soft drink manufacturer in April 2011.
Wincanton’s deal, outlined today, will run for five years and will see it managing more than 100,000 deliveries a year. It has also seen the 3PL renew its contract for its existing warehouse in Lutterworth, taking its relationship with Britvic to 29 years.
Wincanton chief executive Adrian Colman said: “We are pleased to have extended our well-established relationship with Britvic. This contract is further evidence of our partnership approach and dedication to delivering effective and innovative supply chain operations.
“The broadening of our remit to Britvic’s transport operations is particularly exciting and offers further scope to extend our relationship in a rapidly changing retail landscape.”
He added: “Britvic’s ambitious plans, paired with Wincanton’s ability to operate and optimise both warehouse and transport operations, makes for an ideal partnership over the next five years.”
Wincanton recently won a five-year deal with retailer Wilko, taking the business from rival Canute.
