GXO Logistics said it had extended its contract to deliver produce into Waitrose stores across the UK.

The deal means GXO continues to operate two distribution hubs at the supermarket chain’s Milton Keynes depots in Magna Park and Brinklow.

Gavin Williams, GXO UK and Ireland MD, said: “We look forward to deploying our expertise in the grocery sector to help further reduce costs and raise efficiency and productivity for Waitrose.”

Waitrose head of distribution operations and transport, Doug Kay, added: “After a successful three years, GXO has become a trusted partner. We’re working together to implement the latest technology, to even further improve our supply chain - ultimately benefiting our branches and customers alike.”

The logistics company said that as part of its local community outreach, it also operated staff stores, which donate proceeds to 25 local charities.

These stores reduce customer wastage and provide support to colleagues and the wider area.
