A new distribution model has been developed by XPO Logistics for Radius Systems, a specialist polyethylene pipe producer in Ireland and the UK. The enhanced process will increase the delivery frequency of in-stock goods from twice weekly to daily, using integrated technology that facilitates a data flow from order handling to fittings despatch.
The existing service is complemented by direct deliveries to Belfast and Dublin within 48 hours. That is supported by 72 hour distribution for all other areas. The service covers orders for stocked items received before noon on working days. The new operation eliminates the need to stock-check several locations and therefore saves time when dispatching orders.
XPO Logistics has 195 locations with approximately 3.5 million sqm of warehousing and over 15,000 employees in the UK.
