Kingspan picks XPO for distribution contract

XPO Logistics has won a multi-million pound distribution contract with Kingspan Insulation, the rigid insulation manufacturer. XPO will deliver products to construction companies – operating from three of Kingspan’s manufacturing centres at Pembridge in Herefordshire, Selby in North Yorkshire, and Basildon in Essex.

KINGSPANA new delivery fleet includes vehicle-mounted forklift trucks. XPO is using its shared-user national network to support the partnership. Truck drivers will use in-cab technology with access to full track and trace, as well as a sign-on-glass system for real-time proof of delivery.

“We are delighted to have been entrusted with delivering distribution service enhancements for Kingspan Insulation,” said Richard Cawston, XPO managing director, supply chain UK and Ireland. “By combining a dedicated delivery operation and our nationwide logistics platform, we have created a flexible, future-proofed solution.”
