Valero extends Wincanton contract

Valero has extended and expanded its partnership with Wincanton.
The partnership, which has spanned almost 20 years, will now continue for at least another five years. Wincanton has also been awarded a new, five year contract to take over the scheduling and planning of its deliveries, including taking and managing customer orders.
Under the new terms Wincanton will operate out of Valero’s network of UK terminals, transporting more than two billion litres of fuel a year for the business. The logistics provider will operate a 24/7 service on behalf of Valero, taking up to 600 customer orders a day before scheduling and planning delivery to more than 1,000 UK locations.
Commenting on the announcement, Wincanton’s CEO, Eric Born, commented: “We are delighted to be expanding our relationship with Valero and are looking forward to finding further opportunities to develop new and innovative ways of adding value to our partnership.
“Today’s announcement confirms Wincanton’s position as a market leader in the sector, with a proven capability to deliver value added services that are usually out of scope within a traditional fuels distribution model.”
