XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of supply chain solutions, was awarded a contract by new customer Pearson Education to distribute courseware and assessment materials in the UK. British-based Pearson is a leading provider of educational materials, e-learning programs and assessment services for schools, corporations, students and clinicians in 70 countries.

Pearson’s published materials in the UK are distributed mainly to primary and secondary schools and clinicians. By relocating distribution from Belgium to the UK, Pearson has shortened lead times for deliveries to its customers while gaining greater visibility and seasonal flexibility. XPO uses its technology to manage all materials for a course of study as a single SKU, accommodate peaks in demand, and customize clinical testing kits. XPO’s hub in Merlin Park, Birmingham, distributes materials for Pearson’s retail and educational channels and fulfils both direct-to-consumer orders and orders placed by major e-commerce companies and wholesalers.

“We’re delighted to welcome our new customer, Pearson Education, a prestigious name in learning materials worldwide,” said Malcolm Wilson, chief executive officer of XPO Logistics Europe. “A key to this relationship is our capability for tailored, value-added services across diverse customer markets. Our combination of technology and expertise puts us in a unique position to help Pearson enhance its customer service for years to come.”
