Waitrose selects logistics provider

Waitrose & Partners has chosen a new logistics solutions provider to operate two key UK distribution hubs on its Milton Keynes campus

XPO Logistics will operate the Magna Park Waitrose & Partners national distribution centre and Brinklow regional distribution centre for the food retail division of John Lewis Partnership.

It will be responsible for warehouse operations and transport at these two sites.

The Magna Park national distribution centre has approximately 950,000 square feet of ambient warehouse space while Brinklow divides 320,000 square feet between chilled, frozen and ambient space for fast-moving SKUs.

Omnichannel distribution

XPO will manage the picking and despatch of an estimated 93 million cases per year at Magna Park and 50 million cases at Brinklow.

Mark Robinson, director, supply chain for the John Lewis Partnership, said: “XPO brings exceptional expertise and experience in omnichannel distribution. We look forward to working with them to implement their plans for two sites that continue to play an integral role within our supply chain network."
