XPO Logistics awarded contract with Aldi 04 March 2016

Wash and repairing reusable transit packaging

XPO Logistics is working with Aldi’s asset management provider to support their existing returnable equipment network. The discount supermarket chain has awarded XPO a multi-million pound contract to wash and repair reusable transit packaging from its UK stores.

In a collaborative arrangement with other XPO Logistics customers, approximately 22 million Aldi plastic crates will be processed each year through XPO Logistics tray wash centres. XPO Logistics will take additional responsibility for the processing of beverage trays, universal display pallets (UDPs), potato shippers and fresh produce and meat shipping containers annually for Aldi.

The contract will be serviced by XPO Logistics regional facilities in Falkirk, Rochdale, Doncaster, Bristol and Dagenham. Consolidated items will be washed, inspected and returned back into the supply chain. Repairs can also be carried out as necessary. By combining volumes at these shared user facilities, XPO’s customers benefit from operational synergies and handling efficiencies.
