Wincanton, the largest British logistics company, has recently announced how happy it is with our collaboration and the benefits it is getting by using the ORTEC cloud-based loading and routing solution.

The ORTEC TMS solution is part of a multimillion-pound project to digitize their transport systems. This helps Wincanton to dynamically manage all transport resources in the future, through fleet optimization, safety, and business growth.
Optimized planning of loading and routes ensures that deliveries are made efficiently and on time, while also reducing empty miles and collecting data on fuel usage. Wincanton will also improve their clients’ satisfaction through proactive customer service and delivery messaging. Our solution will be integrated with Wincanton’s GPS track and trace solution (Winsight) and their in-cab telematics system (MiX Telematics).

Chris Fenton, Managing Director of Industrial & Transport at Wincanton, said:
“At Wincanton, we are investing heavily in digitizing our transport systems to support business growth. Bringing in a state-of-the-art Transport Management System is a huge step forward for us. It will bring measurable benefits to our customers in the form of improved efficiencies and communication.
Moving away from the legacy AS/400TM system, which is still used by many logistics companies, sets us apart with a fleet which leads on safety, performance and efficiency”.
