Asda renews recycling logistics contract
Supermarket giant Asda Stores has renewed its contract for reverse logistics and asset management services
Asda has inked a new three-year deal with XPO Logistics to manage product trays through a network of nine sites.
The returned assets are washed, inspected and reused for product distribution, or may be sold or recycled. XPO is an integral partner in Asda’s zero-waste strategy, ensuring eco-friendly recycling of all card, plastic and food waste.
Proprietary XPO technology, developed in conjunction with Asda, will be used to manage a pool of over eight million assets and oversee 250 supplier accounts.
Chris Hall, senior director, central logistics – Asda Stores, said: “Together, we’ve worked hard to implement far-reaching waste reduction initiatives and achieve significant savings and other efficiencies. We look forward to nurturing further improvements across our reverse network.”
