Total renews Wincanton contract for a further three years

Total has renewed a contract with Wincanton, which will see the latter manage Total’s maintenance warehouse at Lindsey Oil Refinery in Lincolnshire for a further three years.

Wincanton will manage and control the warehouse facilities containing 31,000 stored units used in repair and maintenance, and will have responsibility for receiving deliveries, kit preparation, project control, stock audit, inspection functions, and on-site chemical and gas deliveries.

Chris Kingshott, Wincanton’s managing director for manufacturing, said: “Total’s worldwide success is built upon a culture of continuous improvement and astute cost management, goals very much aligned with our own and a major factor in our two businesses’ long and successful partnership.”

As part of a pledge by Wincanton to encourage more young people to look at the logistics sector as viable career options it will place two apprentices onto the Total contract.
