XPO Logistics has renewed its UK partnership with stainless steel manufacturer Outokumpu, extending the partnership to nearly two decades. XPO is responsible for transporting stainless steel products from the manufacturer’s site in Sheffield, to its UK construction customers. XPO recently invested in new, fuel-efficient trucks and trailers outfitted in Outokumpu livery, and developed a digitised electronic tracking system. The new 26 tonne rigid trucks XPO will deploy for Outokumpu this month use Euro 6d compliant engines and include two bespoke stainless steel coil carriers. The trailers utilise an innovative design that reduces overall weight without compromising safety or durability. Each trailer can transport up to 3 tonne more goods per load.
XPO Logistics Managing Director Transport UK & Ireland Mr Dan Myers said “We’ve now digitised the Outokumpu customer experience with a dashboard that provides updates on transit conditions, ETAs and real-time electronic proof of delivery.”
