Tesco expands fuel delivery partnership

Tesco has awarded XPO Logistics a multi-year contract to deliver its fuel across the UK.

XPO, which has been working with the supermarket retailer for more than 25 years, provides tech-enabled transport solutions for customers across a number of supply chains in Europe, including food and beverage, e-commerce, industrial, and consumer goods.

The move comes after the supermarket retailer announced that it had chosen the logistics business to manage its chilled distribution to stores in the North West.

XPO has a dedicated tanker fleet and 350 specially trained drivers to collect fuel Tesco fuel terminals nationwide and allocate it to more than 500 Tesco consumer filling stations and regional distribution centres.

"Together, Tesco and XPO benefit from a partnership that has been built over many years on trust, agility and creating value,” said Dan Myers, managing director, UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics. “I'm extremely proud of how the colleagues from both businesses engage as one team that consistently delivers for this partnership.

“My thanks go to them for their efforts, and also to Tesco for the continued trust they place in XPO."
