GXO Logistics has agreed a deal with homeware retailer Dunelm Group to provide increased capacity for its home delivery fulfilment operations in Staffordshire.

GXO said it intended to outfit Dunelm’s new facility in Stoke with technology, including Cognex machine vision systems and ProGlove barcode scanners, as well as train Dunelm colleagues to use its systems to pick items from inventory that have been ordered online, pack and then hand them off to carriers.

“We’re very excited about the opportunity to work with Dunelm, which saw a 115% surge in online sales in the last 12 months,” said Gavin Williams, GXO MD UK and Ireland.

“We’re looking forward to helping the company increase its capacity for home delivery, especially in the run-up to its peak homewares sales season in January.”
