Transportation and logistics solutions provider XPO Logistics has been awarded a supply chain contract from Cummins to support its global customer base with parts distribution.
XPO will operate Cummins’ primary parts distribution center starting this month, managing approximately 800 workers and over 2,700 orders shipped daily.
The one-million square foot facility in Memphis, Tenn., distributes component parts, rebuild kits and remanufactured engines as the principal restock hub for North American and global Cummins warehouses.
XPO will provide custom-designed technology for parts stocking and control, fulfillment, shipping, and returns management. The Cummins facility in Memphis employs more than 1,600 across its remanufacturing and distribution operations.
“The employees and the important work they do each day at our distribution center is critical to the success of our customers and to Cummins,” said Clarence Carr, director, Memphis Distribution Center, Cummins. “We will work with XPO to ensure that the operations and the work environment continue to be of the highest quality and something we can all take pride in. We will continue to look for new and innovative ways to improve our work and our services.”
