Logistics North East is very happy to confirm we have been awarded a long term deal with XPO Logistics to be their North East distribution hub. XPO are a global, Multi-billion pound organisation and it is a great achievement to have been awarded the contract. XPO’s Darlington site will close and all of their regional customers will be serviced by our site at Chester-Le-Street. This will see our pallet distribution increase by more than 500 per day, alongside our specialist 2 man division and express van network we will also be providing up to 5 night trunks for XPO in to their main hubs. This contract starts on the 24th of December 2020 and is another step towards a very successful 2021 for LNE. David Hodgson (MD) says about the new contract – “XPO’s approach to be their regional partner was a no brainer from our perspective, to work in partnership with a global brand such as XPO Logistics can only enhance our market offering and we are all extremely excited to get started. It has been a quick turn around and the project management teams on both sides of the table have worked tirelessly and efficiently to get the transition done for the 24th of December”.
