GXO boosts Currys’ operations in first year


GXO Logistics has celebrated the first anniversary of its partnership with Currys plc. GXO operates four distribution centres for the retailer in the UK and Ireland, as well as its omnichannel fulfilment and returns logistics.

In the first year of their partnership, GXO stated that it simplified Currys’ supplier structure, unlocking efficiencies by eliminating non-value-added tasks. Earlier this year, GXO expanded its scope to manage the retailer’s core transport services to complement its warehouse solutions, providing full end-to-end supply chain value.

GXO also helped Currys meet TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings, Protection of Employment) requirements by hiring more than 1,800 employees.

GXO Managing Director for the UK and Ireland Gavin Williams commented: “We’re delighted with the results our partnership with Currys has achieved in our first 12 months, adding GXO’s logistics expertise in consumer technology to Currys’ outstanding business. Both companies are committed to operational efficiency and making safety a top priority, and our highly-skilled teams know how to deliver substantial savings. Together with Currys, we look forward to creating even more efficiencies and continuing to delight Currys’ consumers from purchase through delivery.”
