European logistics provider Wincanton, and the UK's leading compliance scheme provider, Valpak, have announced an alliance to offer solutions that will enable manufacturers and retailers with producer responsibility to discharge their obligations under the forthcoming UK WEEE regulations.
Wincanton and Valpak will co-operate in developing and marketing services in this sector, utilising Valpak's producer compliance
service expertise and Wincanton's supply chain solutions and treatment specialism.
The partnership will enable the development of a WEEE services package, including a joint strategic approach. It will offer clients
turnkey and bespoke solutions, whereby Valpak registers the producer and manages producer compliance, and Wincanton designs and manages the
transport and treatment solutions. This approach will minimise costs
and maximise efficiencies to the client.
Steve Gough, CEO, Valpak Limited, says: "We're delighted to announce
our partnership with Wincanton, and to be able to offer businesses a
strategic approach to the impact of the WEEE directive."
Gordon Scott, Managing Director, Industrial, Wincanton, comments:
"Valpak has unparalleled experience and a track record in delivering
sustainable and cost-effective compliance solutions. Valpak - like Wincanton - has been involved in preparations for the WEEE directive for a number of years. Their knowledge of managing producer
compliance, teamed with Wincanton's logistics and recycling capabilities, will allow us to deliver a unique, cost effective WEEE
compliance solution to our customers."
