XPO Logistics awarded CHEP contract in France

XPO Logistics has won a contract extension with CHEP France, a supply chain solutions company and provider of pallet and container pooling services. XPO will handle the collection and delivery of over 5,000 CHEP orders per year, representing about three million pallets for automotive customers in France.

Pallets from Moncourt facility near Nemours (Seine-et-Marne) are used to manage auto parts packaging. The company’s decision to award its entire logistics operation to XPO builds on a longstanding relationship with XPO that covers central France from CHEP facilities in Veretz (Indre-et-Loire), Cercottes (Loiret) and at the Parcay Meslay site (Indre-et-Loire). The companies are working together to tailor additional technology solutions and deliver new services for the automotive industry.

Luis Angel Gomez, managing director–transport, XPO Logistics Europe, said, “We’re proud to have won the Moncourt contract with CHEP based on our expertise in providing just-in-time service backed by state-of-the-art technology systems. We look forward to continuing to add value to CHEP’s automotive supply chain while helping our customer grow.”
