The deal will see Wincanton continue to collect more than 700 million litres of milk each year from over 450 farms across the south of England and Wales for onward delivery to Müller’s dairies in Bridgwater, Droitwich, Severnside and Market Drayton.
The contract will utilise a dedicated tanker fleet, supported by the latest telematics technology.
Rob Hutchison, Operations Director at Müller Milk & Ingredients said: “We’re proud to buy a fifth of all the milk produced on Britain’s farms and it’s crucial to our operation that it is safely delivered into our network of super dairies in a timely fashion. We’re delighted to continue working with Wincanton, a proven long-term partner that has consistently provided an excellent service and the flexibility to meet our requirements.”
Chris Fenton, Managing Director of Industrial & Transport at Wincanton, said: “This contract allows us to extend our close relationship with Müller – a relationship built upon Wincanton’s ability to deliver a safe, effective and timely service to both Müller and its farm partners.
“Working closely with Müller, we’ve implemented an innovative redesign of the operation tailored directly to its needs. This will provide a greater reliability and service performance for the farming community, the foundation of the dairy industry.
“Wincanton was founded over 90 years ago as a transport company serving the dairy market and this specialist industry remains central to the business.”
