XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a leading global provider of transportation and logistics solutions, announced an expansion of its global supply chain support for Sealed Air Corporation with the launch of an integrated warehousing and logistics management program in North America.
Sealed Air is a global leader in food safety and security, facility hygiene, and product protection. XPO's new operation supports four Sealed Air product lines - Diversey®, Cryovac®, Instapack® and Taski® - at a 550,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Sturtevant, Wisc. The facility will serve Sealed Air's customers worldwide with inventory management, light assembly, kitting, labeling, fulfillment and distribution of orders.
Emile Chammas, senior vice president and chief supply chain officer for Sealed Air, said, "We selected XPO Logistics for this critical role in our supply chain based on the strength of its global experience and ability to continuously improve logistics processes. Sealed Air looks forward to innovating with the XPO team to increase operational efficiency and ensure the highest level of service for our customers."
XPO already provides Sealed Air with technology-enabled logistics, warehousing and transportation management services in Europe, and with intermodal and less-than-truckload transportation in North America. The new contract represents a significant expansion of the relationship between the two companies.
"We are delighted to bring additional value to Sealed Air's supply chain with this major expansion of our role in North America," said Ashfaque Chowdhury, XPO Logistics president-supply chain, Americas and Asia Pacific. "Sealed Air has entrusted us with delivering an advanced solution for warehousing and distribution. We are now engaged in bringing our expertise to bear from both sides of the Atlantic, to give this important customer every advantage in serving its global network."
