NORTHAMPTON, UK – 2 March 2021 – XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of transport and logistics solutions, has renewed its contract with Wavin Limited to manage transport operations in the UK.

XPO manages Wavin products’ delivery from plants in Chippenham (Wiltshire), Doncaster (South Yorkshire) and Crow Edge (South Yorkshire) to destinations throughout the UK. Three services are integrated on XPO’s technology platform as a single solution: dedicated truckload transport, less-than-truckload pallet transport and a bespoke parcel delivery service.

Since our collaboration, XPO has improved on-time performance in all delivery streams, reduced our transport costs and provided us with valuable digital visibility.
