- In a trading update issued ahead of its half-year results, third-party logistics company Wincanton said it had secured 'good levels' of new business in the period, including a five-year deal with supermarket Morrisons.

It announced the board expected results for the full-year to 31 March 2020 in line with market expectations.

The group disposed of two freehold properties during the half-year for £5.5m, with an exceptional profit of approximately £2m will be reported in the first half in relation to the sale of these properties.

Wincanton's net debt at 30 September 2019 is expected to reduce to approximately £15m.

It will announce interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2019 on 13 November.
