Wincanton is a leading provider of transport and distribution services across the UK and Ireland.  Due to the unique nature of our customer base, geographic coverage, and scale of operations, we are able to deliver transport solutions and services that demonstrate a new collaborative way of thinking and push the boundaries of transport. 

Regional transport centres

Operating out of four regional transport centres, Wincanton provides distribution services to a broad range of the UK’s leading retailers and manufacturers. Our transport management system and in-cab technology provides national visibility of all orders and transport movements, allowing us to provide the most cost effective, efficient and sustainable transport plan for both our own fleets and those of our customers. 

Collaborative transport solutions

Due to our scale and extensive customer relationships we demonstrate a unique ability to deliver true collaboration across the supply chain. This might be sharing space on a vehicle, combining customers to maximise backhaul or operating a fully integrated fleet on behalf of multiple customers. Whichever the collaborative solution we implement, all allow a significant reduction in overhead, fleet and operating costs, whilst ensuring a responsive, agile and flexible supply chain.

High street delivery network

Through our scale we have joined together approximately thirty of our retail customers to provide a flexible, networked solution for high street deliveries. Sharing loads and distribution schedules, we are able to provide considerable cost savings and efficiencies of scale.

UK wide distribution services

Our complete transport offering includes the UK’s largest port to DC container logistics service as well as national transport coverage. Other services include haulage, freight forwarding, supply chain modelling and transport execution management. 

We provide distribution services for customers across a vast range of sectors including retail, consumer goods, construction, petroleum, bulk foods and defence.

Reliable, scalable, collaborative and flexible supply chain services

We work collaboratively with our customers to drive efficiency, improve their supply chains and ultimately make them more successful. Scalability and flexibility are key, whether its transporting a single container or managing a complete supply chain. Our logistics solutions span the complete supply chain from raw materials to returns management.


Transport solutions | flexible, collaborative, dedicated haulage

Supply chains are becoming more sophisiticated as customers push for smaller, more frequent deliveries to match consumer demand and meet the needs of 'just in time' production schedules. Wincanton's efficient, collaborative transport models help customers to control costs, optimise service assets and improve services levels.


Multi-modal transport | flexible road and rail solutions

With one gallon of fuel moving one tonne of product 246 miles by rail, as opposed to 88 miles by road, and one rail freight journey removing 30 trucks from the UK road network, rail is an essential consideration for every efficient supply chain today.
