Tesco awards XPO Logistics with contract for Distribution of Chilled Foods

04 April 2022/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain

XPO Logistics has been awarded a multi-year contract by Tesco plc to manage Tesco's chilled distribution to stores in the North West region in the UK.

XPO will be responsible for temperature-controlled transport using XPO fleet and drivers despatched from Tesco's distribution centre in Widnes, Cheshire. 

The two companies will collaborate on developing a plan for a carbon-neutral or carbon-negative solution that supports Tesco's sustainability objectives.

The company deploys a dedicated fleet of tanker trucks and specially trained drivers to collect fuel at 15 refineries and deliver it to nearly 500 consumer filling stations across the UK.  


Dan Myers, Managing Director of UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, said:

 "Tesco and XPO have built trust between our two businesses over many years by working together to ensure a robust supply chain. We believe this has created a solid foundation for the future development of our partnership. Providing transport operations at Widnes distribution centre is a natural evolution in our relationship, and we look forward to supporting Tesco in delivering this next phase in their logistics strategy."
