Wincanton has been awarded a three-year contract by Kelkay to provide scalable transport services.

The transport services will include store deliveries, fleet provision and maintenance, planning, scheduling, and compliance.

The new contract will see the Group manage the movement of 20,000 orders per year from Kelkay’s site in Pollington, East Yorkshire, for distribution to more than  2,000 retail locations across the UK and Ireland.

According to Mintel, the UK garden products retail market is forecast to see sales increase 35.3% by 2025 as consumers focus on improving their gardens and outdoor spaces.

Andy DeVere, Group Transport Director at Wincanton said: “The contract win strengthens Wincanton’s position as a leading supplier to the UK garden products retail market.”

Paul North, AMES UK Managing Director added: “The Wincanton team is now seamlessly embedded in our organisation and our customers will benefit through streamlined communications and timely deliveries.”
