Drinks win for Wincanton

Wincanton has extended its drinks operation with a five year deal with E&J Gallo.

It will manage national warehousing and distribution from its bonded shared user site in Daventry, delivering over 13 million cases of product across the UK to a number of retailers.

Wincanton says it will generate efficiency improvements  through a collaborative approach, while the effects of seasonal troughs will be offset by the sharing of the warehousing and distribution.

Wincanton will also manage the port to DC operations and added value services such as product co-packing which will process up to 250,000 cases a year across a number of skus.

Charlie Frohock, European logistics director at E&J Gallo, said: “We saw this partnership as a perfect cultural fit; Wincanton’s desire to consistently empower its employees and encourage its staff to better themselves is completely aligned with the way that we conduct business at E&.J Gallo. The ability to work in a collaborative manner was also extremely appealing.”
