Wincanton has won a contract to deliver more than 2Mta of bagged and bulk cement for Lafarge Cement UK. The operator will work in partnership with the Lafarge’s in-house logistics fleet. It will deliver both bagged and bulk loads of cement from sites across the UK, from Aberdeen to Liskeard.

Alaister White, Lafarge Cement’s head of logistics, said: “When we are looking to award a contract of this importance to our business and our customers we will only consider those potential partners who not only meet the high qualification standards, but who will also bring something extra to the business.

“Wincanton‘s operational team demonstrated their strong determination and ambition to make this contract work for all concerned, including our customers. They also succeeded in demonstrating that they fully shared our safety values and were prepared to put in the extra effort and apply their own experience and expertise to take that relationship a step further."
