GXO operates multiple warehouses for the online fashion destination and is a strategic partner for ASOS across Europe
LONDON, U.K., Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GXO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: GXO), the world’s largest pure-play contract logistics provider, announced today that it is celebrating its 10th year as a strategic supply chain partner for leading online fashion destination ASOS.
“We’re proud to have served ASOS for the past decade, providing an array of services at multiple sites in the UK and Europe,” said Gavin Williams, Managing Director, U.K. & Ireland, GXO. “Over the last ten years we have handled nearly 400 million customer orders and over 270 million returns at our UK sites alone. ASOS is a true partner, sharing our commitment to supply chain excellence as well as corporate social responsibility, in particular the fantastic engagement programmes we deliver together for our on-site colleagues. We look forward to continuing our shared success, leveraging our leading teams, expertise and technologies to help ASOS excel.”
GXO manages inbound and outbound warehouse operations as well as returns, repairs and salvage for ASOS. The partnership began at a single facility in Barnsley, U.K., in 2013, and together the companies have since expanded their footprint in the U.K. and Europe. GXO also handles transport operations with a fleet of approximately 30 trailers. Through its expert use of technology, both large-scale and modular — including the deployment of scaled automation projects and modular technologies — GXO has helped ASOS to transform its logistics. Together, GXO and ASOS have leveraged Lean principles and GXO’s best-in-class continuous improvement (CI) programme to deliver multi-million-pound savings for ASOS over the duration of the partnership.
Chris Smith, Director of Logistics, ASOS said, “Throughout our 10-year partnership with GXO, they have supported our business with world-class logistics and excellent on-site relationships. We trust their operations teams to do the right thing at the right time for our business and for all the people we employ at our sites.”
As an employer of choice, GXO fosters a culture of inclusion at its facilities and its team members represent over 60 nationalities. This commitment to inclusion is evident in GXO’s partnerships in which it provides meaningful employment opportunities to ex-offenders with Tempus Novo and to adults with Down’s Syndrome with WorkFit. Over the years, the partnership has won numerous awards for its employee learning and development programmes, while also supporting communities where its employees live and work through volunteering and fundraising. Safety is GXO’s top priority, and its Barnsley site, for example, is RoSPA gold accredited.
