MoD extends Wincanton deal

The Ministry of Defence has renewed its contract with Wincanton for the UK distribution of bulk aviation fuels to UK air bases and marine vessels, for a further three years.

As a new part of the contract, fuel is ordered directly from Wincanton, and delivered to over 25 sites across the UK for use in training missions for aircraft such as the RAF Tornado.

Wincanton delivers over 85 million litres of fuel per year for the MoD, which is equivalent to almost 2,500 vehicle loads.

Chris Kingshott, managing director of Wincanton, said: “We are very pleased to see our relationship with the MoD going from strength to strength. We take pride in offering our customers the most efficient logistics solution we can, and have developed further flexibility in our services for the MoD, adding value to their operations. We look forward to working with them for another three years.”
