Leading supply chain provider, Wincanton, has extended its drinks operation with a five year deal with E.& J. Gallo.
The new contract will see Wincanton manage the national warehousing and distribution from its bonded shared user site in Daventry, Northamptonshire, delivering over 13 million cases of product across the UK to a number of leading retailers.
The collaborative approach to the contract will generate efficiency improvements in the supply chain for the customer and allow the effects of seasonal troughs to be offset by the sharing of the warehousing and distribution.
Wincanton will also manage the port to DC operations and added value services such as product co-packing which will process up to 250,000 cases per annum across a number of SKU’s.
Charlie Frohock, European Logistics Director, E.& J. Gallo, commented on the award: “We are delighted to be able to award this contract to Wincanton. We saw this partnership as a perfect cultural fit; Wincanton’s desire to consistently empower its employees and encourage its staff to better themselves is completely aligned with the way that we conduct business at E.&.J. Gallo. The ability to work in a collaborative manner was also extremely appealing.”
Jeff Anderson, Managing Director, Wincanton, said: “It is particularly pleasing that our core values have been recognised in such a way. We were also able to demonstrate the strength of our service offering in the UK drinks sector. We look forward to developing a long and fruitful partnership with E.& J. Gallo.”
