Cromwell Tools has awarded a multi-year contract to XPO Logistics to provide distribution services to Cromwell branches in the UK.

XPO has been contracted to fulfil core transport services on behalf of Cromwell, including night deliveries to Cromwell locations nationwide, as well as inter-site transport activities and supplier collection routes during the day. The overnight service will replenish inventories at all locations and distribute prepared customer orders for onward direct delivery.

XPO’s core fleet will be despatched from Cromwell’s World Distribution Centre in Leicestershire to over 40 delivery points, supported by satellite sites in XPO’s transport network.

Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, said, “We thank Cromwell for trusting us to continuously build on their customer experience by collaborating with their network. Our solution is engineered to deliver reliable results that align with Cromwell’s stated purpose to keep industry working, with service innovations and time and logistical efficiencies. This important partnership has the full benefit of our expertise.”
