Contract renewal marks Wincanton’s 15-year partnership with Heinz

Chippenham, UK: Wincanton has renewed its long-standing warehousing and distribution contracts with Heinz.  And,  for the second year running, Wincanton was the only logistics company invited into Heinz’s top tier, or “Golden Circle”, of preferred suppliers.

The contract means Wincanton will transport around 92 million cases a year across Heinz’s extensive product range – including the famous baked bean, tinned soup and other household-name products – until at least 2015.

Wincanton has also won an extension to provide warehousing services for the next four years and its order management team will also handle all customer orders – up to 6,000 per month – across all temperature ranges on behalf of Heinz.

Chris Kingshott, managing director, manufacturing at Wincanton, said: “The company is extremely proud to be able to continue its 15-year association with the world-famous brand”.
