Wincanton to support nuclear power station construction
The British logistics provider Wincanton has won a contract from EDF Energy to provide warehousing and transport services for the construction of Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset. It is the first new nuclear power station in the UK for a generation.
Wincanton will provide storage, handling, asset tracking and transportation for incoming materials to the Hinkley Point C project, from warehouse locations both on and off site. Wincanton’s role will be to manage surety of supply across thousands of product lines, and facilitate a three-month buffer stock.
Using the latest release of Manhattan Associates’ warehouse management solution, Wincanton will be able to effectively execute all warehouse operations at multiple sites, involving hundreds of thousands of individual SKUs as well as numerous suppliers. (mw)
