Premium soft drinks manufacturer Fentimans has extended its supply chain partnership with Wincanton.

The five-year extension will see the supply chain business as Fentimans’ dedicated warehouse and transport partner, managing operations from Wincanton’s shared-user distribution centre in Middlewich, Cheshire.

Services include the distribution to the drinks firm’s UK domestic market and the assembly and preparation of export lads for onward shipping to global markets – delivering about five million products annually.

“The quality of our working relationship and agility of the service provision will position us very positively in driving our longer-term growth strategy.” 

Fentimans will also continue to benefit from Wincanton’s EyeQ tracking technology, which offers the manufacturer accurate, real-time visibility of its stock, proof of delivery and optimisation of delivery routes.
