British Gypsum set to optimise supply chain with support from XPO Logistics 14 May 2019

Building one of the largest transport networks in UK construction

XPO Logistics has been selected by British Gypsum to optimise its UK supply chain with a single, digitally-managed transportation network. British Gypsum is part of the Saint-Gobain Group and the UK’s leading manufacturer of plasters, plasterboard and high-performance drylining systems for the construction industry.

XPO will create an integrated transportation network for British Gypsum using a customised delivery model deployed on XPO Connect, the Company’s proprietary, cloud-based platform. Distribution will take place from British Gypsum’s five manufacturing plants and four outbases in the UK. Additionally, XPO will manage all downstream processes, including load securing, yard management and weighbridge operations.

XPO will make a significant investment in new fleet dedicated to the British Gypsum network, using vehicles outfitted with telematics and cutting-edge safety technology. The vehicles will meet the Direct Vision Standard for heavy goods transport, designed to protect vulnerable road users, as well as the FORS/CLOCS accreditations for road risk management.

XPO has the scale and vision to help British Gypsum manage its growth, while serving customers with greater efficiency and a zero-harm safety ethos. XPO perceives the operations to be game-changer in UK transport.
