Wincanton buys CEL Group

Supply chain solutions provider Wincanton is claiming a 15% share in the UK container logistics sector with its acquisition of the CEL Group

The CEL Group consists of three trading companies: CEL (Logistics) Ltd, W Carter (Haulage) Ltd. and CEL (Engineering) Ltd. It provides UK-wide container haulage, storage and maintenance services, employs 470 people and operates a fleet of 370 vehicles. Bringing a portfolio of major shipping lines and freight forwarders, the acquisition significantly broadens Wincanton’s customer base, with operations at all the major UK ports.

Wincanton says it will maximise synergy benefits with the integration of its existing container business with CEL. The move will strengthen operations at the inland container terminal in Alconbury as well as allow Wincanton to benefit from the growth in global sourcing and low cost overseas manufacturing.

Commenting on the acquisition, Jeff Anderson, managing director, Wincanton, said: “This considerable strengthening of our container activities in the UK complements our market leading intermodal business in mainland Europe and demonstrates our future commitment to the container industry and our customers. In CEL, we have found a business that provides a strong strategic fit with Wincanton.”

Shaun Allen, managing director, CEL, said: “We are delighted to be joining Wincanton with the on-going stability and investment this brings to our business. Wincanton’s focus on the container industry within the supply chain mirrors our own strategic objectives for growth and we look forward to the opportunities that this will create for our customers.”
