Jon Parry, vice president, Asda Logistics Services, said: “We are pleased to be renewing our contract with Wincanton for a further three years. This will continue to build on our strong working relationship that has stretched over the last 13 years and we look forward to the ongoing collaborative approach that will no doubt bring further value to the Asda logistics network.”

Ian Keilty, managing director of Retail and Consumer at Wincanton, said: “Our collaborative working bond has allowed us to build a stronger understanding of the Asda supply chain. We’ve used this knowledge to assist Asda in unlocking new value from its supply chain operations, which is evidence of our successful partnership.”
