Wincanton has opened a 128,000 sq ft distribution centre in Prologis Park, Stafford, for Screwfix.
The 3PL said that the DC was in addition to volume that Wincanton has taken on through its shared user network during Covid-19, and would look to support the delivery of seasonal products.
Paul Taylor, contract general manager at Wincanton, said: “Mobilising an end-to-end solution to support the Screwfix business with a seamless customer experience in just four weeks is quite an achievement and demonstrates our agility and commitment to our customers.”
Operations are due to commence in August.
Rosemary Wilkins, director of logistics at Screwfix, added: “It’s great to work with a logistics partner who can draw upon their scale to mobilise quickly to support the changing requirements of the business.”
