XPO Logistics has been awarded a long-term contract with leading educational toys creator VTech for its storage and warehousing requirements in the UK.

The agreement expands XPO Logistics’ longstanding support of VTech operations in Europe.

“We are delighted to be working with XPO Logistics at this exciting time in our growth," said Paul Holding, operations director for VTech.

"The West Hallam facility’s proximity to major parcel and pallet network hubs will bring greater efficiency to our customer service infrastructure and allow for later cut-off times for orders. In addition to these immediate benefits, XPO Logistics has the ability to adapt quickly to our changing storage requirements, and can readily accommodate volume growth.”

XPO Logistics has developed a flexible warehousing solution to fulfill a growing number of VTech customer orders in the UK. The operation will be strategically based at XPO Logistics’ West Hallam shared user facility in Derbyshire.

At peak, the site will accommodate secure storage of over 10,000 pallets of VTech products. The warehouse management system will receive orders electronically to ensure that they are picked and prepared for despatch in line with VTech’s requirements. XPO Logistics will also manage a reverse logistics operation at the facility.
