The UK’s largest third party logistics (3PL) company Wincanton had a big boost in volumes handled over the Christmas peak season compared to 2018.
During the week leading up to Christmas Day, the 3PL provider delivered 47% more fuel to petrol stations (110 million litres) than it did the year before, and completed 31% more container journeys (4,207 journeys) than 2018 as well.
James Wroath, CEO of Wincanton, said: “While we spend time relaxing and enjoying the festivities, it’s worth remembering the food in fridges, presents under trees and even the fuel in vehicles have been on long journeys.
“These amazing numbers display the commitment and expertise of Wincanton’s drivers, warehouse teams and everyone across the business. Their huge efforts helped consumers throughout the UK to enjoy Christmas and the New Year with friends, family and loved ones. I’m proud of everyone at Wincanton’s achievements.”
