Operations underway at Wincanton’s new Scottish hub

Wincanton has commenced operations at its new supply chain hub, Scotland Gateway. The facility, located 12 miles east of Glasgow, is to act as a central hub for Wincanton’s operations in Scotland.

The firm says that ‘by July 2023, all Scottish customers in Wincanton’s Public & Industrial, General Merchandise, and eFulfilment divisions will have their operations migrated to, and running through, the site’.

With an internal footprint of 153,000ft², Scotland Gateway provides ‘an integrated range of services across warehousing, storage, and transport solutions’. It makes use of Wincanton’s digital transport management platform, Winsight, and its warehouse management system (WMS), Manhattan.

Derek Stirling, Country Manager for Scotland at Wincanton, said: “Our new Scotland Gateway site is a testament to Wincanton’s long-term commitment to Scotland, supporting the strategically important Central Belt and the economy through trade and jobs.

“This will improve our customers’ services across the entirety of the United Kingdom, cementing Wincanton’s position as a partner for each and every one of the four nations.”

Wincanton expects the hub to create up to 100 jobs including flexible operational and driver roles.

Stephanie Callaghan, MSP for Uddingston and Bellshill, said: “I am delighted that Wincanton has chosen Uddingston and Bellshill as the centre of its Scottish operations, supporting good local jobs and skills training, all at the beating heart of the Scottish economy. I look forward to strengthening our relationship with the Group in the year ahead.”
