Tesco has renewed its contract with XPO Logistics for the management of 12 Recycling Service Units (RSUs) throughout the UK and Ireland, along with the maintenance of its loose equipment fleet.

XPO will be responsible for loose equipment and packaging waste from more than 2,700 Tesco stores in the UK and Ireland. Assets are backhauled on Tesco’s and its suppliers’ store delivery vehicles to the RSUs. The operation currently handles around 17,500 returning vehicles each week.

Under the contract, XPO is responsible for the servicing and maintenance of more than a million roll cages, as well as trays and dollies.

In addition, XPO has developed and implemented a live data capture system and the trial of a segregation system for plastic waste.
