Neal’s Yard extends multi-channel deal with Wincanton

Neal’s Yard remedies has renewed its multi-channel contract with Wincanton for another three years.

Wincanton originally won the contract in 2008 and runs the operation from its 500,000 sq ft shared-user distribution centre at Greenford, West London.

Wincanton manages warehouse and distribution of Neal’s Yard organic skincare products and herbal remedies to stores, retail outlets and homes across the UK, and to international outlets in the USA, Asia, Dubai, mainland Europe and Africa.

Since 2008 the firm has seen a 20 per cent increase of its retail stores, a 25 per cent increase in international franchisee stores, and the launch of NYR Organics @ Home in the UK and USA.

Jon Hiatt, operations director at Neal’s Yard Remedies, said: “As a modern, globally-focused enterprise we need a supply chain provider that not only delivers logistics solutions, but who also understands the complex nature of multi-channel operations and has the resource and experience to add real value to the relationship.

“To support our growth plans we need the flexibility that Wincanton’s supply chain solutions provide, coupled with the agility to be able to deal with the many and varied day to day challenges presented by a multi-channel operation.”
