Wincanton announces new e-fulfilment facility

Wincanton is investing in a dedicated new e-commerce fulfilment facility in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, due to open this month.

The first customers in this new site will be existing Wincanton partners, home furnishings brand Loaf and health and beauty company Neal’s Yard Remedies.

The third-party logistics company will operate the facility under its W2 digital banner, with plans for further investment in cloud-fulfilment systems and robotics, aimed at accelerating online growth in the home, health and beauty sectors.

As part of the transition, Wincanton has secured a new warehouse contract with Loaf for a further five years. It manages the end-to-end supply chain for Loaf, including warehouse services, order fulfilment, carrier management and two-person home delivery.

Following Wincanton’s contract win to run the new Waitrose Customer Fulfilment Centre (CFC) in Greenford later this year, the new Nuneaton facility will create increased capacity to support the growth in e-commerce.

James Wroath, chief executive at Wincanton, said: “This new site, and the new contract with Loaf, is a clear demonstration of Wincanton’s capability and commitment to supporting our customers’ growth and digital plans.

"A relentless focus on superior customer service and innovating through technology is key to continuing both our and their success.”
