Waitrose work helps propel strong growth at Wincanton

London, UK: Wincanton highlighted new operations at its west London Customer Fulfilment Centre (CFC) for Waitrose when it reported a strong fourth quarter trading performance.

The CFC team picked and dispatched close to 20,000 orders for Waitrose in less than a month of starting operations.

Wincanton listed the new Waitrose business in its trading update, in advance of the release of its full year results on 20 May. Underlying revenue is expected to be around 15% ahead of the previous year, with growth in all sectors. Wincanton’s digital and efulfilment work is again set to deliver year-on-year growth of around 40% in the period.

James Wroath, chief executive of Wincanton, said: “Wincanton has delivered another strong performance, maintaining our positive momentum throughout the final quarter of the year. Our people have met the challenges associated with operating in another lockdown and it is very satisfying to see all four parts of the business in growth and contributing positively to the group.”
