XPO Logistics announced an expansion of its global supply chain support for Sealed Air Corporation – the maker of Bubble Wrap – by launching 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.
“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,” said Emile Chammas, senior vice president and chief supply chain officer for Sealed Air.
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.
