Unipart extends contract with Waterstones for five years


Leading UK Bookseller Waterstones has extended its long-term partnership with Unipart Logistics for an additional five years. Unipart will continue to distribute books and related products to 280 shops, and to customers at home, from their 150,000 sq ft hub in Burton-on-Trent.

Beccy Preece, Head of Supply Chain Services at Waterstones said: “Over the past 10 years our needs have changed – along with the change in the way our customers buy books – and with the introduction of a greater, non-book range Unipart have adapted to support our needs and so have helped our business to grow.”

Claire Walters, Chief Commercial Officer at Unipart Logistics said: “We are looking forward to taking our partnership to a new level, through implementing innovative ideas and digital technology to further enhance the Waterstones supply chain.”
