XPO uses HVO heating fuel at Motherwell distribution centre to reduce environmental impact

23 January 2023/Categories: Logistics & Supply Chain, Operations Management


XPO has completed its pilot programme at Newarthill distribution centre in Motherwell, Scotland. 

The company has committed to being a responsible supply chain partner and has replaced the site’s heating fuel with hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) biofuel. The HVO product sourced by XPO is manufactured from waste material, expanding the company’s support of the circular economy.

XPO estimates that switching from heating oil to HVO will save 220,000 kg of CO2e emissions a year from the Motherwell operation. The company operates 100,000 sq. ft. of the multi-purpose facility as a satellite site for its less-than-truckload (LTL) and dedicated full truckload transport networks, as well as warehouse storage for customer goods and office space.

Dan Myers, XPO’s managing director – UK and Ireland, said:

 “This innovative application of HVO again demonstrates the ‘art of the possible’ in our thinking and our approach to sustainability. It is a clear demonstration of our commitment to how we are working for a better planet.”
