XPO Logistics has renewed its contract with frozen food retail leader Iceland Foods for warehousing and distribution services. XPO will implement a phased strategy to increase growth capacity for the British supermarket chain, with scalable initiatives for technology, labour optimisation, fleet optimisation and cost savings. The renewal extends XPO’s partnership with Iceland to more than a decade.

Together, Iceland and XPO are achieving measurable improvements in safety and operational excellence.

XPO’s distribution solution combines six Iceland warehouses with supplemental capacity at XPO shared-user sites, and additional logistics and transport support as needed for peak demand. XPO manages approximately 3,000 colleagues at Iceland distribution centres in Warrington, Deeside, Enfield, Livingston and two in Swindon.

The companies co-developed a behavioural safety programme for site colleagues, resulting in consecutive annual improvements in safety performance, including 2020, during COVID-19.
