Customer testimonial

Now we have outsourced the warehousing and distribution to XPO Logistics, we have been able to build sufficient stock holding, availability has improved and accordingly our service levels to retailers are much higher. I am very happy with the way XPO Logistics has responded to the challenge we have given them, to manage not only strategically increased volumes, but currently higher than forecast volumes.
