FGP forces depot clousre

Factory gate pricing (FGP) has claimed a victim – Wincanton is to shut this summer its chilled services depot located in Milton Keynes.

The third-party logistics (3PL) company blames the FGP strategy being adopted by the major supermarkets for the closure. More than 300 jobs are thought to be affected by the planned closure, although Wincanton expects to relocate some of employees to other nearby sites.
