Home appliance group Beko – whose brands include Grundig and Zenith – has selected a new UK transport partner
Beko has handed the contract to XPO Logistics who are now responsible for delivering the full range of Beko plc refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, cookers, dishwashers and freezers marketed under its home appliance brands.
XPO has customised an end-to-end transport solution using dedicated fleet with in-cab technology for tracking and proof-of-delivery. The company manages all UK distribution of appliances to independent stores and retail chains, operating from two Beko plc warehouses in Tamworth, Staffordshire, and one in Hams Hall, Warwickshire.
Supplemental capacity for peak periods will be sourced from XPO’s broader fleet and carrier partners.
Andrew Parkin, operations director, Beko plc, said: “We place a high priority on having the right distribution partner to support our customer base in the UK. XPO has the scale and expertise necessary to handle our continued growth in this important market.”
