Wickes has extended its contract with Wincanton to cover the delivery of kitchen and bathroom products across Devon and Cornwall.
The extended contract follows Wickes’ transition to Wincanton from its own in-house operations in December 2019. The service now covers much of the south-west of England, Midlands and part of Wales.
Product will be loaded onto final delivery vehicles in Northampton, which will then be moved to four parking locations operated by Wincanton
Dudley Holliday, head of kitchen and bathroom distribution at Wickes, said: “The additional contract has been awarded following an already successful working relationship, which constantly strives to provide the best possible service for our kitchen and bathroom customers. As we draw on our learnings, I am confident that this is another step forward in delivering a great fulfilment offering.”
Last year Wincanton won a three-year contract renewal with Wickes to provide home delivery of heavier items to customers across the UK. The two parties were also winners at the 2019 Supply Chain Excellence Awards.
Paul Durkin, director, Home & eFulfilment at Wincanton, said: “This growth further underlines our position as the UK’s market leader in kitchen and bathroom home delivery services.”
Wickes and Wincanton were winners at the 2019 Supply Chain Excellence Awards. Entries are open now for the 2020 awards, with new categories – including the Retail Supply Chain Excellence Award. The ceremony will take place on 12 November. For more information, including how to enter and sponsorship opportunities, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
