Contract logistics provider GXO has today announced it is expanding its long term partnership with Manchester airport.

The company has been providing logistics services to retail, food, and beverage vendors at Manchester airport for nearly twenty years.

Over the past 16 years, GXO has helped Manchester Airport scale up in line with increasing demand and today the company supports more than 70 retailers and food and beverage vendors, delivering a wide range of products — including luxury goods, electronics, and fresh and frozen foods to restaurants and stores.

On average, GXO receives, screens, and delivers more than a million items a year, with goods processed on the day of receipt.

As part of the original mandate, GXO operates a 29,000ft2 screening and consolidation centre.

Up to 80 inbound deliveries are received daily and consolidated onto GXO’s last mile delivery fleet, which reduces vehicle movements around the airport by up to 75%, helping to reduce pollution from CO2.

“Our team provides highly flexible and responsive services that form an integral part of the airport infrastructure and leverages our extensive industry knowledge and experience with many other airside customers,” said Gavin Williams, Managing Director of GXO.
