XPO Logistics has been awarded a contract with Vivino, the wine app and e-retailer, to manage its e-commerce supply chain. XPO will utilise its multi-customer warehouse in Trezzo sull’Adda, near Milan, Italy, to fulfil the contract.
Vivino started off as an app for wine enthusiasts to provide evaluations of bottles and wineries. It has recently started selling wine and has chosen XPO to meet its supply chain needs. Vivino estimates it will generate shipments of approximately 500,000 bottles of wine per year.
XPO will provide an interface between itself, Vivino and third-party couriers to enable monitoring across the supply chain from arrival at the warehouse to physical delivery to the consumer.
Ube Gaspari, XPO Logistics managing director-supply chain for Italy, said, “We are delighted to support Vivino in its expansion into online sales by giving them the benefit of our e-commerce expertise. Together, we designed a logistics solution customized for Vivino’s current needs, with the flexibility to support our customer’s growth objectives in Italy and other European markets, step by step.”
