Wincanton enters UK WEEE alliance

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.

Press Release

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.

our partnership with Wincanton, and to be able to offer businesses a

strategic approach to the impact of the WEEE directive."

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."
