Carlsberg renews logistics contract with XPO

Carlsberg has renewed its UK contract with XPO which involves provision of integrated logistics for brewery production, warehousing and distribution of 400 million litres of beer.

Paul Armstrong, Carlsberg’s vice president customer supply chain, said: “By working with XPO, we have been able to respond quickly to customer demand while ensuring a high level of satisfaction.”

XPO operates three sites for Carlsberg in Northampton, receiving inbound raw materials and positioning them for the production lines; then moving the filled bottles, cans and kegs to storage areas where they undergo quality control before the packaged products are transferred to the distribution centre for onward delivery to Carlsberg UK’s customer base.
