Wincanton is better positioned to drive growth in the outsourced logistics market as a separately quoted entity, said the firm, as shares in the demerged company started trading this week. "We had been hidden under a bushel as part of Uniq," said consumer logistics general manager Graeme McFaull. "Going it alone we should be able to lift our profile and attract more investment." Wincanton has a dominant 28% share of the retail grocery third party logistics market in the UK and major contracts with manufacturers including Heinz and Nestlé. It is in the "exploratory stages" of talks with continental grocery giants. {{NEWS }}
