XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of transport and logistics solutions, has extended its partnership with Glen Dimplex Consumer Appliances (GDCA). GDCA’s brand portfolio includes Morphy Richards, Roberts Radio, Stoves, Belling, Lec and Britannia Living. The new contract expands XPO’s transport services and adds warehousing and distribution support for GDCA in the UK.

XPO began providing transport services to GDCA two decades ago. The contract further builds on this longstanding relationship by making XPO the preferred UK distribution partner and logistics sustainability adviser to GDCA, providing expertise in technology, value-added services, cost effectiveness and quality.

XPO’s tailored solution for GDCA consolidates two warehouses into one in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. XPO delivers finished goods to the warehouse from the GDCA factory in Prescot, Merseyside, and provides storage capacity, management of spare parts and raw materials, customer and ecommerce order fulfilment and value-added services, such as the customisation of finished goods.

“We’re delighted to take the next steps with XPO in positioning our supply chain for ongoing growth,” said Peter Brooke, chief operations officer, GDCA. “Together, we are simplifying and harmonising our ways of working to enable us to achieve our sustainability ambitions, respond dynamically to customer needs and help us develop our progressive, consumer centric approach.”

Malcolm Wilson, XPO Logistics chief executive officer for Europe, said, “Glen Dimplex and XPO both have continuous improvement in our DNA. Our teams have worked collaboratively for many years and now we have the opportunity to create even greater benefits with an integrated, sustainable solution for logistics and transport. We’re using our technology and expertise to deliver next-level excellence for our customer.”
