GXO partners with global womenswear brand SPANX



GXO has announced that it is partnering with SPANX to provide warehousing solutions at a new facility in Flowery Branch, Ga. Founded by Sara Blakely in 2000, the womenswear brand has seen rapid growth with its omnichannel business, and GXO will support that growth with direct-to-consumer and in-store orders in the U.S. and internationally.

Christy Hillier, the Operations Senior Director who oversees GXO’s Flowery Branch facility, said: “We’re excited to partner with SPANX, a true creator and innovator in the fashion space. We’re bringing our expertise in warehouse technology, including collaborative robots, to help SPANX improve its efficiency, quality, and customer service. We’re proud to support SPANX’s mission to ‘help women feel great about themselves and their potential.’”

GXO’s 445,000 sq ft dedicated site northeast of Atlanta employs nearly 200 people and uses 6 River Systems collaborative robots, or cobots, to improve efficiency and to enhance employees’ safety and their overall work experience. The facility ships the brand’s line of apparel, activewear, intimates and shapewear to customers and retail centers around the world. GXO is also providing reverse logistics for SPANX, quickly and efficiently evaluating returns and placing qualifying items back into salable inventory.

Keith Miller, Chief Information Officer at SPANX, says, “Our customer experience is at the core of what we do. GXO is bringing industry-leading technology and automated solutions that will help us meet our efficiency and customer service goals. We are proud to have a warehouse partner in our home state of Georgia, and to deepen our roots within this community while also perfecting our customer experience.”
