"Wincanton is at the heart of British supply chains. Through our investments in automation and robotics, we increase the agility, resilience and efficiency of our customers' supply chains, in turn, meaning that our customers can then focus their investment on product development.

"Today's capital markets event will primarily focus on the eFulfilment market, a key growth priority for our business, and we look forward to showcasing our state-of-the-art facilities."


The presentation will not be webcast live and the event is in-person only. A replay of the presentation and the accompanying slides will be made available on the Group's Investor Relations website following the event.
