XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of transport and logistics solutions, has renewed its contract with frozen food retail leader Iceland Foods for warehousing and distribution services. XPO will implement a phased strategy to increase growth capacity for the British supermarket chain, with scalable initiatives for technology, labour optimisation, fleet optimisation and cost savings. The renewal extends XPO’s partnership with Iceland to more than a decade.

XPO’s distribution solution combines six Iceland warehouses with supplemental capacity at XPO shared-user sites, and additional logistics and transport support as needed for peak demand. XPO manages approximately 3,000 colleagues at Iceland distribution centres in Warrington, Deeside, Enfield, Livingston and two in Swindon. The companies co-developed a behavioural safety programme for site colleagues, resulting in consecutive annual improvements in safety performance, including 2020, during COVID-19.

“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, while continuing to give Iceland customers the outstanding service they expect from us.”

Malcolm Wilson, XPO Logistics chief executive officer for 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.”
