Asos expands partnership with XPO Logistics

XPO Logistics and ASOS have expanded their partnership with a new Lichfield fulfilment centre and Barnsley contract renewal.

XPO Logistics has today announced it has been awarded the contract to manage a new fulfilment centre in Lichfield Staffordshire for online retailer Asos. The 437,000 sq ft distribution centre at Fradley Park is expected to commence operations in August 2021, creating about 2,000 new jobs over the next three years.

The new contract expands XPO’s eight-year relationship with the retailer, which has also renewed XPO’s long-term contract to manage the existing Asos fulfilment centre in Barnsley.

Gavin Williams, Managing Director, Supply Chain for UK and Ireland at XPO Logistics said: “These two, new multi-year agreements with Asos are a testament to the dedication of our team and the cutting-edge expertise we have showcased at the Barnsley facility over the last eight years. We’re eager to apply our know-how to our third Asos site with the launch of operations in Lichfield.”
