XPO Logistics has extended its partnership with Glen Dimplex Consumer Appliances (GDCA) which supplies Morphy Richards, Roberts Radio, Stoves, Belling, Lec and Britannia Living products.

The new contract sees XPO add warehousing and distribution support for GDCA to its existing transport deal.

The new deal sees XPO become the preferred UK distribution partner and logistics sustainability adviser to GDCA with a brief to provide expertise in technology, value-added services, cost-effectiveness and quality.

Under the expanded contract XPO will consolidate two warehouses into one in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.
