The XPO operation uses a mix of core fleet vehicles and shared user transport and will provide Princes with real-time visibility and vehicle tracking into the progress of deliveries.

Dan Myers, XPO Logistics UK and Ireland managing director, said, "Princes Group encompasses so many recognised and loved brands found in kitchen cupboards up and down the country. Being a critical part of Princes' supply chain is testimony to the relationship we've built together and the trust Princes has in the XPO team."
