XPO Logistics will serve as the primary UK transport partner for home improvements firm, Anglian Windows.
To launch the multi-year contract, XPO created a customised transport solution and transitioned Anglian’s incumbent supplier.
The new network utilises a dedicated fleet of trucks, trailers and on-site shunters.
XPO Logistics said its teams are trained in the handling of Anglian product lines, and performance is managed in real time by XPO transport experts based at the Anglian manufacturing facility in Norwich.
Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland at XPO Logistics, said: “Anglian Windows is a values-driven company with a strong commitment to British quality.
“Using our experience in the building sector, we have designed a scalable distribution model that will elevate service and support Anglian’s expansion for years to come.”
Anglian Windows specialises in the manufacture of double and triple glazing windows, front and back doors and conservatories.
Paul Jackson, head of production control and logistics at Anglian Windows, said: “As a company with deep roots in the British market, it is critical that we earn the loyalty of our customers by making their experience satisfactory in every respect.
“We are very pleased to have XPO as the transport partner for Anglian Windows. XPO’s commitment to our success has been evident throughout our collaboration.”
XPO Logistics has started trialling a Low Bridge Alerting System (LBAS) from telematics company VUE.
