From 27 January, XPO will operate Weetabix’s multi-warehousing operations at the company’s main site in Burton Latimer, near Kettering, and at Corby in Northamptonshire. The focus will be on improving automation across the site and driving sustainable efficiencies while delivering for Weetabix customers. 

Around 200 of the current Weetabix workforce at the site will become part of the XPO team. XPO will also develop and implement new in-house systems to help Weetabix improve its current operations through synergy. One of the key objectives will be to create an optimal operation that prioritises job satisfaction for employees across the business.  

We chose XPO because they clearly share our ethos of sustainable efficiency, valuing our people and putting the customer first. We look forward to working with XPO on the next phase of our warehouse operations, said Richard Spaughton, Head of Supply Chain at Weetabix. 

XPO will also manage Weetabix’s global forwarding requirements through cross-border services, customs clearance and coordinated transport projects. There will be a continuous focus on improving and optimising processes to deliver the best possible customer service.  

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 warehouse strategy. The future is really exciting and I look forward to working with Weetabix and our team to deliver on our ambitious plans, said Dan Myers, UK and Ireland Managing Director for XPO Logistics. 

XPO’s proprietary business intelligence technology will bring new visibility to how the site operates and encourage increased proactive decision-making, which in turn will help improve efficiency.
