Wincanton teams up with Virtualstock
UK logistics company Wincanton is partnering with Virtualstock to provide a Supplier to Customer service which will “allow retailers to extend their range or diversify their portfolio without actually having to hold inventory”.
In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (23 January), Wincanton explained: “Virtualstock’s platform delivers integrated “Supplier to Consumer” (S2C) fulfilment functionality, allowing one retailer to sell another retailer or supplier’s goods without ever having to stock or deliver them, driving significant opportunities for revenue growth, while protecting margins by mitigating the impact on operating costs.
“When allied with Wincanton’s collaborative logistics capability, the two companies are able to rapidly transform a retailer’s ability to quickly respond to an ever-changing market.”
Paul Durkin, Director for Home and eCommerce at Wincanton, said that Wincanton “takes care of all the logistics, in a seamless and integrated way”.
