XPO has won a multi-year contract for end-to-end management of luxury bed and bath linen retailer Christy England's supply chain for all channels in the UK and Ireland.
The two companies collaborated on designing a customised supply chain solution that integrates inbound product transport from multiple manufacturing locations, storage at XPO’s shared-user warehouse in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and outbound transport of product orders to retail stores and outlets in the UK and Ireland, as well as the retailer’s e-commerce operations and niche delivery points.
XPO said its shared-user storage solution will provide the partnership with greater flexibility in the use of warehouse space and improved overall efficiency, aided by its state-of-the-art warehouse management technology which oversees inventory control and logistics management of last mile orders delivered to Christy customers.
