Pure-play contract logistics provider GXO Logistics has partnered with homeware retailer Dunelm Group, to provide increased capacity for its home delivery fulfilment services in Staffordshire.
GXO will outfit Dunelm’s new facility in Stoke with various technologies, including Cognex machine vision systems and ProGlove wireless wearable barcode scanners, as well as providing training to Dunelm colleagues to use GXO’s advanced systems to pick items from inventory that have been ordered online, pack them efficiently, and hand them over to carriers for delivery.
“We’re very excited about the opportunity to work with Dunelm, which saw a 115% surge in online sales in the last 12 months.
“We’re looking forward to helping the company increase its capacity for home delivery, especially in the run-up to its peak homewares sales season in January,” said Gavin Williams, GXO Managing Director, UK and Ireland.
Brett Morris, Dunelm Head of Parcel Home Deliver added: “We looked at our expectations for further growth and realised we needed to increase capacity and improve our customer proposition within home delivery operations. The agreement with GXO will help us add the capacity necessary to handle growth of our home delivery business and reduce our carbon emissions by making our deliveries more efficient.”
