Wincanton has launched ‘Virtual Access to Storage and Transport’ (VAST) to make finding and selling warehouse space across the UK quick and easy, via www.oneVASTwarehouse.com.
Buyers: find storage space when and where you need it, arrange transportation through Wincanton's 4,000-strong fleet of LGVs and arrange additional 3PL services (such as pick and pack) all in one place.
Sellers: market your spare space directly to businesses looking for storage to generate a new revenue stream.
oneVASTwarehouse is about collaboration. An online platform, it links those looking for storage with those looking to generate revenue from their underutilised space.
This ‘virtual warehouse’ is over 30m sq. ft. in size. It is made up of Wincanton’s property portfolio, that of its partners and third-party businesses advertising through the platform.
We’re in the midst of an unprecedented demand for storage space in the UK, with many warehouses running at close to capacity. This is likely to have significant knock-on effects for the coming 31 October Brexit deadline, which will coincide with Christmas peak.
Because of this, we need to think differently about how we share warehousing space and the services that support it. That’s where oneVASTwarehouse comes in.
Warehouse owners and operators can use the platform to sell their underused space to those that need it. This collaborative approach is opening up resources that would otherwise have been unavailable; at the time they’re most needed.
