GREENWICH, Conn. – September 27, 2016 – National British supermarket chain ASDA Stores, Limited has renewed its long-term agreement with XPO Logistics (NYSE: XPO) for reverse logistics operations. Under the new contract, XPO will continue to manage nine ASDA service centers for the Leeds-based retailer. XPO washes millions of units of returnable transit equipment each year for ASDA and repairs them when necessary.
XPO has worked with ASDA to introduce a wide range of innovations in the service centers, including a “zero waste to landfill” (ZWTL) solution that helps ASDA meet its recycling goals for more than 600 stores in the U.K. Many of the solutions have been custom-developed through this relationship, reducing costs along the supply chain by bringing more logistics functions in-house. Proprietary XPO technology developed with ASDA tracks the assets and manages hundreds of supplier accounts.
