Wickes expands supply chain agreement

By Retail Technology | Thursday February 16 2023 | UPDATED 23.02.23

Home improvement retailer Wickes has announced a new four-year contract with its supply chain partner

The new contract with Wincanton, which spans warehouse and transport operations, will see Wincanton become the sole supply chain partner for Wickes’ kitchen and bathroom business in the UK.

Wincanton has worked with Wickes since 2017, gradually expanding its services over time to cover the management of 50% of Wickes’ kitchen and bathroom transport operations. The new contract increases this to 100% of kitchen and bathroom deliveries.

As part of the contract, Wincanton is pleased to welcome 342 Wickes colleagues who have been transferred across, with Wincanton now responsible for the management of Wickes’ 400,000 sq ft kitchen and bathroom distribution centres in Northampton.

In addition, Wincanton will implement a continuous improvement and operational excellence programme to deliver significant savings and support business growth for Wickes. A particular focus will be on improving customer experience and using innovation to drive efficiency and sustainability improvements.
