XPO Logistics has renewed its its UK partnership with pooled pallets provider, La Palette Rouge (LPR).
The new contract extends XPO’s relationship with LPR, which is a division of Euro Pool Group, to twenty years.
XPO will continue to manage pallet depots for LPR in Mossend, North Lanarkshire; Sywell , Northamptonshire and Avonmouth, as well as a new depot in Grays, Essex.
All four sites are purpose-built pallet sortation warehouses; while the Grays depot houses facilities to perform heat treatment services to ISPM-15 phytosanitary standards.
Simon Wood, LPR operations director – UK and Ireland, said: “Together, we’ve worked hard to optimise LPR’s supply chain and reduce our carbon footprint. We look forward to providing customers with the additional storage capacity, throughput and geographic coverage offered by our newest depot.”
Gavin Williams, Managing Director, Supply Chain – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, added: “LPR and XPO are trusted strategic partners aligned towards a more sustainable future for supply chains.
“We’re excited to use our expertise in the FMCG and retail sectors to help transporters, producers and retailers realise maximum value from LPR’s circular pallet solution.”
