XPO Logistics awarded contract by Fujitsu General Air Conditioning (UK)

XPO Logistics has been awarded a contract by Fujitsu General Air Conditioning (UK). Under the contract XPO will provide supply chain and specialist transport services across the UK for Fujitsu’s commercial air conditioning units. One-man and two-man crews will deliver the units to offices and industrial buildings both as direct orders and via distributors.

XPO will accommodate 4,000 pallets of air conditioning units on site at its Aylesford, Kent warehouse, and transport an estimated 11,000 pallets annually. XPO will flex its transport and logistics resources to accommodate seasonality, using its warehouse management technology to manage flows, control stock levels and report on performance.

Ian Carroll, sales director of Fujitsu General Air Conditioning (UK) Ltd, said, “By offering online tracking of shipments, a mobile app for our customers and considerable transport capability we are able to fulfil client orders more efficiently and accurately, with clear visibility as to shipment progress, which leaves us free to focus on growing our business.”

Operating from ten depots with a network of fleet and drivers, XPO’s delivery network covers mainland UK and is supported by a central customer service team in its Birmingham hub.
