Expansion follows Bigblue’s selection of GXO in Spain, Bigblue’s fastest growing market, in 2022
GXO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: GXO), the world’s largest pure-play contract logistics provider, announced today that it has expanded its partnership with Bigblue, to include warehouse logistics in France. Bigblue, which offers brands and online stores fulfillment services, started its partnership with GXO in Spain in a shared space facility.
“We are delighted to expand our relationship with Bigblue to include e-fulfillment and ecommerce services in France,” said Paul Mohan, Managing Director of Continental Europe, GXO. “Our work with Bigblue illustrates GXO’s ability to optimize logistics for a wide range of customers — from start-ups to established global brands. Following our successful launch of operations in Spain last year, the partnership in France is a logical progression of Bigblue’s plans to efficiently scale its business across Europe. Both of our companies have significant experience in multiple sectors — including the fashion, beauty and wellness fields — and GXO is using its scale, technology and expertise to optimize Bigblue’s warehouse operations.”
In France, Bigblue will occupy part of a large scale GXO’s facility in Tigery, where the company expects to handle several million orders annually. Bigblue offers services that cover the entire value chain, from the shopping experience to after-sales service, as well as the automatic management of shipments from any sales channel (e.g., web, marketplace, traditional retail).
William Meunier, Chief Operations Officer and Co-founder, Bigblue, said, “We chose to partner with GXO because of their strengths in our target markets, the reliability of its processes, its high degree of automation and its ability to provide the maximum degree of customization in each order. Combined with Bigblue’s technology, we can offer a seamless pre and post-purchase experience that sets a new standard in the industry. This collaboration enables D2C brands to access the best in logistics and technology to grow their operations without friction.
