XPO Logistics has extended its contract with Izco Food Group subsidiary Daloon Foods.
XPO will continue to deliver inbound product clearance, storage, repacking, order preparation, consolidation and outbound transport of around 700 pallets a week for the frozen food producer at its temperature-controlled warehouse in Easton.
The shared-user facility allows XPO to meet Daloon’s seasonal requirements for stocking, staffing and transport.
XPO will also perform co-packing as a value-added service under the new contract. The company declined to specify the length of the extended contract.
