Weetabix chooses 3PL to run multi-warehouse operation

22 February 2024

XPO HAS taken on the work for the leading cereal brand.

XPO started to run the Weetabix multi-warehousing operation at the company’s primary site at Burton Latimer near Kettering, as well as Corby in Northamptonshire from 27 January. The focus will be on improving automation across the site and driving sustainable efficiencies.

Around 200 of the current Weetabix workforce at the site will become part of the XPO team. One of the most important goals will be to create an optimal operation that prioritises work satisfaction for those working across the business.

Weetabix head of supply chain Richard Spaughton, says: “We chose XPO as they clearly share our ethos regarding sustainable efficiencies, how we value our people and prioritising the customer. We are excited to move together into the next phase of our warehouse operations with XPO.”

XPO will also manage Weetabix's global forwarding requirements through cross-border services, customs clearance and aligned transport projects.

Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, adds: “Weetabix is an iconic brand and a company with strong people values, something we share at XPO. Together we will continue to develop the supply chain roadmap and future warehousing strategy. The future is genuinely exciting, and working with Weetabix and our team, I look forward to seeing the delivery of our ambitious plans.”
