Lakeland enhances distribution

By Retail Technology | Wednesday January 11 2023 | UPDATED 11.01.23

Cookware retailer Lakeland has implemented an expansive optimisation plan with its distribution partner

Lakeland has worked with XPO to enhance its efficiency and sustainability with a new hybrid distribution solution.

In the first six months of optimisation — from June to November 2022 — the results showed significant gains in key areas of focus. The two companies’ joint collaboration has delivered:

  • 99.5% on-time performance with deliveries to stores
  • 19% cost outperformance in the six-month period, year-over-year, relative to budget
  • 1.4% average savings per trip from shared trailer model
  • 104,000 kg reduction in CO2 emissions in the six-month period, year-over-year, from route optimisation
  • Zero health and safety accidents across distribution operations

Claire Seddon, head of supply chain management for Lakeland, said: “Since 2018, we have collaborated with XPO to ensure that our distribution network flows smoothly and our stores are replenished with stock to meet customer expectations. XPO is our partner of choice for the critical agility we require. Now, we are working together to take the operations to the next level of excellence for our business and, importantly, for the customers we serve.”
