Wincanton has won a five-year contract with Watson Fuels to handle all of the distributor’s artic fuel activity across the UK.

As part of the agreement, Wincanton will use its shared-user EnergyLink tanker fleet to deliver fuel into Watson Fuels’ national depot network, as well as directly to its artic customers across the UK.

Wincanton will manage artic vehicle routing through the use of its transport management system (TMS) and it said Watson Fuels will also implement the same TMS to help fulfil the contract.

Chris Fenton, MD of Industrial and Transport at Wincanton, said: “With our experience in the bulk fuel distribution market, spanning retail and commercial grades through to aviation fuels, we are confident that our expertise and knowledge will help Watson Fuels to provide the level of service which its customers expect.”

Wincanton’s EnergyLink service was launched in 2016 with the aim of supporting the ground fuels, aviation and bitumen markets by lowering distribution costs.
