James Wroath, CEO at Wincanton, says: “This new site, and the new contract with Loaf, is a clear demonstration of Wincanton’s capability and commitment to supporting our customers’ growth and digital plans. A relentless focus on superior customer service and innovating through technology is key to continuing both our and their success.”
