UK: Britvic extends distribution deal with Wincanton

By | 8 August 2008

Britvic has extended its distribution contract with supply chain group Wincanton.

The extension means that Wincanton will continue to operate Britvic's national distribution centre (NDC) in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, as well as handling the manufacturer's primary transport requirements.

Wincanton currently provides both inbound and outbound transport operations between Britvic's factories, primary and secondary warehouses, and Britvic's entire customer base, managing over 180m case movements a year.

Dave Eslick, director of logistics, Britvic, said: "We have worked extremely closely with Wincanton for many years now to ensure that our supply chain is seamlessly integrated into the rest of our operations. Wincanton understands our business and has consistently demonstrated its ability to improve efficiencies and reduce costs on our behalf."

Steve Basnett, business unit director, Wincanton, said: "We have been involved with the Britvic NDC since it opened in 1994, and have evolved our service to meet the changing needs of Britvic's operational and service requirements. One example of this has been the introduction of the co-packing and rework services that we carry out at an adjacent site, which have delivered tangible added value to the contract."
