XPO Logistics has won a contract with AKW Medi-Care to distribute its products to dealers and consumers in the UK.



XPO said its last mile service for AKW would use a truck fleet running an average of 30 routes per day, distributing products to trade and e-commerce customers from AKW’s warehouse in Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire, and four XPO satellite sites.

Matt Till, Logistics Director at AKW, said: “The resilience of our supply chain has never been more vital than it is right now, when so many people are coping with life at home. XPO has been extremely responsive in understanding our need to act quickly and maintain continuity during the pandemic.”

Dan Myers, managing director for transport – UK & Ireland, at XPO Logistics said: “Within two weeks of finalising the contract, our team completed the transition to a dedicated fleet with real-time tracking and a more agile distribution model. AKW customers throughout the UK can be confident of receiving the products they need.”
