XPO Clinches Contract Renewal with Iceland
Cold Chain Federation member XPO Logistics has renewed its contract with frozen food retailer Iceland Foods for warehousing and distribution.
XPO will implement a phased strategy to increase growth capacity for Iceland, including initiatives for technology, fleet optimisation and cost savings. The renewal extends XPO’s partnership with Iceland to more than a decade.
XPO combines six Iceland warehouses with supplemental capacity at its shared-user sites, and additional logistics and transport support as needed for peak demand. The operations works out of Iceland distribution centres in Warrington, Deeside, Enfield, Livingston and two in Swindon.
“We’re delighted to take the next steps with XPO in positioning our supply chain for ongoing growth,” said Steve Pennington, supply chain director, Iceland Foods. “Together, we’re achieving measurable improvements in safety and operational excellence.”
Malcolm Wilson, XPO Logistics chief executive, Europe, said: “The teams at Iceland and XPO collaborate daily to make the most of the synergies in our combined network. We’re excited to use our technology and expertise to deliver the next level of results for Iceland through our greatest asset, our people.”
