XPO has entered into a multi-year partnership to distribute packed cement and cementitious materials from Hanson UK’s facilities in Warwickshire, the East Midlands, North Wales and Lancashire.
“XPO is the ideal partner to enhance the reliability and sustainability of our transport operations in the UK. Working together, we are completing a phased implementation of the new distribution model. XPO’s ability to leverage data for continuous improvement will support our growth and help to move us towards our goal for Net Zero carbon operations by 2050,” said Gareth Price, technical director, Hanson Cement.
Under the new contract, XPO has developed a digitally managed transport network to manage more than 30,000 deliveries annually from Hanson’s sites.
“Our collaboration with Hanson already feels like a long-established relationship between two trusted partners. From the first day of working together, the combined team have committed to a seamless implementation, and I thank them for their efforts. Together, we are implementing a market-leading platform to serve Hanson’s customers and support their success,” added Dan Myers, XPO’s managing director – UK and Ireland.
