XPO Collaborates with Christy to Create an End-To-End Omnichannel Supply Chain Solution

XPO, a leading provider of innovative transport and logistics solutions in Europe, has launched a first-time partnership with Christy England, a retail brand synonymous with luxury bed and bath linens since 1850.

Manchester-based Christy has awarded XPO a multi-year contract for end-to-end management of its supply chain for all channels in the UK and Ireland.

The two companies collaborated on designing a customised supply chain solution that integrates inbound product transport from multiple manufacturing locations, storage at XPO’s shared-user warehouse in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, and outbound transport of product orders to retail stores and outlets in the UK and Ireland, as well as the retailer’s e-commerce operations and niche delivery points.

Mike Holland, director of product and supply chain for Christy, said, “At Christy, we have always held ourselves to the highest standards of quality and service, and we prioritised these same attributes in the competitive tendering of our supply chain. Our choice of XPO has given us a cohesive, multichannel solution that delivers immediate benefits and will evolve along with our needs.”

XPO’s shared-user storage solution provides greater flexibility in the use of warehouse space and improved overall efficiency. XPO utilises state-of-the-art warehouse management technology to maintain rigorous inventory control and logistics management of last mile orders delivered to Christy customers.

Dan Myers, XPO’s managing director – UK and Ireland, said, “Christy is an iconic brand synonymous with quality and over 170 years of history. Working together in partnership, this new solution will broaden and further enhance Christy’s retail options for customers in all channels, from e-comm to the brick and mortar experience.”

XPO’s innovative service offerings include technology-enabled truckload, less-than-truckload, truck brokerage, managed transport, last mile and freight forwarding. The company tailors its solutions to customer-specific needs across a range of consumer, trade and industrial sectors and world-class events.
