Logistics company Wincanton has successfully renewed its storage and distribution contract with Waitrose & Partners, the grocery division of the John Lewis Partnership, it announced on Thursday.

“The flexibility of our network and bespoke storage solutions has enabled us to extend our long-standing partnership with Waitrose, which we are delighted to see continue,” said chief executive officer James Wroath.
“As e-commerce continues to grow at pace, our responsiveness and innovation-led logistics are key to unlocking value for our retail customers.”
