BT Group and GXO Logistics have today announced a partnership to outsource and transform part of BT’s supply chain across the UK.
BT’s supply chain provides logistics support across all of BT Group’s operations, including supporting the Group’s fixed and mobile network build activities by transporting stock and replenishing supply stores, helping to keep more than 15 million residential and business customers connected.
The new partnership with GXO forms part of BT’s ongoing strategy to simplify its business. BT will be outsourcing its core warehouse and transport capabilities, while ensuring that the company’s next generation network build plans remain on track.
“By working with [GXO], we’ll create opportunities to improve our service and support BT’s ambitious fixed and mobile network build plans as we transform the business into an organisation that delivers exceptional service, sustainable operations and value for our customers and our colleagues,” said Cyril Pourrat, Chief Procurement and Supply Chain Officer at BT Group.
Gavin Williams, Managing Director of GXO UK and Ireland added: “GXO will be supporting BT’s supply chain as it delivers its ambitious consumer and engineering activities. We’re going to deploy our technological expertise for a new end-to-end systems infrastructure that supports BT’s growth in fibre technology across the UK.”
