Renewable energy wholesaler teams up with Wincanton to upgrade logistics operations

Renewable energy wholesaler Segen has teamed up with Chippenham-based logistics firm Wincanton to upgrade the former’s logistics operations.

Segen is a global wholesale distributor of solar PV, energy storage systems, electric vehicle charging and other associated components with multiple warehouses.

Under the five-year contract, Segen will consolidate is operations into a single 265,000 square foot national distribution centre in Medway, Kent.

Wincanton’s state-of-the-art warehouse management system will be deployed to improve stock visibility while reducing carbon emissions by eliminating the need for the transportation of goods between various sites.

The new Medway operation is a key part of Segen’s commitment to help the UK solar industry hit its 2025 target of 70GW of deployment, while providing an enhanced customer experience.

David Rice, managing director of Segen UK, said: “This partnership is essential for our growth ambitions.

“As the UK’s leading renewables distributor, we are taking the business and our customer experience to the next level. Our partnership with Wincanton and our joint vision of driving efficiency and sustainability improvements through innovation will mean we can do just that.”

Rachel Gilbey, managing director of General Merchandise at Wincanton, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Segen to unlock their growth potential.

“The solution includes the deployment of Wincanton’s warehouse management and transport control tower technology, which alongside our great people, will deliver sustainable supply chain value to Segen and its customers.”
