UK supply chain solution specialist Wincanton has been awarded a five-year contract with Premier Foods – the UK food producer and home to some of Britain’s favourite food brands. The contract will see Wincanton operating an ambient warehouse in Corby, Northamptonshire, processing 80 million cases per year across the company’s extensive product range. This includes famous brands such as Ambrosia, Batchelor’s, Bisto, Oxo and Loyd Grossman sauces.

 

On average around 35,000 pallets will be stored at Wincanton’s 280,000 sq ft warehouse in Corby. When volumes increase during peak periods, additional space will be available at one of several Wincanton sites in the area.

 

Chris Kingshott, Managing Director for Manufacturing at Wincanton said, “This contract win is testament to our commitment to driving collaboration, and creating a win, win outcome through the utilisation of surplus warehouse space which became available after changes to another of our customers’ supply chain networks. We are delighted to welcome Premier Foods to our business and are looking forward to developing a long and successful relationship with the company through delivering consistent performance and efficiency benefits across the length of the contract.

 

“We see the securing of the Premier Foods contract as another demonstration of our outstanding credentials in this sector, and it complements our long-standing relationships with companies including HJ Heinz and Britvic.”

 

Chris Chaplin, Customer Services & Logistics Director, Premier Foods, said :

 

“Outsourcing our Southern based ambient warehousing to Wincanton will enable us to be closer to our customer base and help us to minimise the impact of our operations on the environment.””We are looking forward to working in partnership with Wincanton, who we see as being able to offer a flexible and agile approach in conjunction with operational efficiencies. We can ‘top up’ any storage we may need at any time, without having to go to another third party, and the fact that Wincanton has other warehouse operations in the area means we have a first class solution to meet our needs.”
