The Carphone Warehouse has chosen Wincanton to handle deliveries to 800 high street stores around the country.
Under the five year deal, Wincanton will operate from The Carphone Warehouse’s hub in Wednesbury and associated outbases, and will deliver directly to stores.
Giles Harvey, supply chain director at The Carphone Warehouse said: “At The Carphone Warehouse, customer service is at the heart of everything we do. It is clear that Wincanton shares this operational culture, and we are confident that their expertise will provide us with the very best service, enabling us to continue exceeding our customers’ expectations.”
This contract win comes off the back of Wincanton’s partnership with The Carphone Warehouse’s joint venture partner, leading consumer electronics retailer, Best Buy. Wincanton was awarded a storage and distribution contract with Best Buy Europe in March this year.
