XPO Logistics begins operation of control tower for Siniat


XPO Logistics has announced the company has been managing the European transport planning for Siniat, a supplier of drywall, insulation and finishing work for the construction sector, via its KeyPL management solution since July.

The announcement from XPO Logistics stated the company manages all Siniat’s transport flows and carriers using a centralised control tower including 40,000 transport operations each year including domestic operations in France as well as Belgium, UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy.

Jean-Marc Lami, XPO Logistics KeyPL Managing Director, stated, “The Siniat contract reflects XPO Logistics’ unique expertise in the streamlining and optimisation of transport management on a pan-European scale. Our customer’s confidence in our ability to deliver this solution is based on our considerable experience and expertise of the construction sector, along with our technical capabilities.”

Thierry Personnic, Siniat Supply Chain Director, added, “Siniat chose XPO Logistics’ KeyPL solution, not only for XPO’s expertise but also because its teams were able to commit beyond a cost optimisation plan to deliver key service levels – especially the reliability of customer deliveries and the availability of loading time slots at our 12 facilities, security and environmental criteria, and the monitoring of Key 2 Performance Indicators, as well as the implementation of continuous improvement plans across the duration of the contract.”
