Wincanton renews Ministry of Defence fuels contract
Wincanton announced that its fuels contract with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has been renewed for a further three years.
The contract, originally secured in 2006, builds on a long-established partnership, with Wincanton as the sole supplier to the MoD for the UK distribution of bulk aviation fuels to both UK air bases and marine vessels.
Wincanton delivers over 85m litres of fuel per year for the MoD, which is equivalent to almost 2,500 vehicle loads. As a new part of the contract, fuel is ordered directly from Wincanton, and delivered to over 25 sites across the UK for use in training missions for aircraft such as the RAF Tornado.
Chris Kingshott, managing director, Wincanton said: "We are very pleased to see our relationship with the MoD going from strength to strength. We take pride in offering our customers the most efficient logistics solution we can, and have developed further flexibility in our services for the MoD, adding value to their operations. We look forward to working with them for another three years."
