Wincanton wins renewal contract with Dobbies

16 April 2024/Categories: Industry News, Freight Forwarding, Logistics & Supply Chain

Wincanton has been awarded extended warehouse and transport contracts with garden centre retailer Dobbies.

Under the new agreements, Wincanton will continue providing home delivery, store replenishment and eCommerce services for Dobbies.

The companies first started working together in 2020. Since then, Wincanton has managed the logistics of delivering 110,000 units of stock per week to Dobbies' stores and customers nationwide.

As part of the extended partnership, Wincanton oversaw the relocation of Dobbies' national distribution centre to a new shared facility in Corby, Northamptonshire.

The larger site provides additional space to support Dobbies' future growth plans.

The transition will achieve over 16% improvements in efficiency and allow Dobbies the capacity to increase volumes by 100%, says Wincanton.

David Robinson, CEO at Dobbies, said: “Having the right supply chain partner is crucial to ensuring a seamless operation for our colleagues and customers. Wincanton have been an excellent partner, and we’re looking forward to building on this moving forward, with a quality and reliable service that we can rely on.”

James Wroath, CEO at Wincanton, said: “The extension of our partnership with Dobbies showcases the resilience, breadth and agility of Wincanton’s capabilities. We are proud of the strength of our change management capability which ensured a safe and secure transition to the new site, and the benefits this brings to Dobbies and its customers.”
