Case study

Special storage for a bottled-water leader

Opportunity

In early spring, at the beginning of the seasonal surge in demand, GXO began providing public warehousing space to a leading manufacturer of bottled-water brands. As production ramped up at the customer’s plants, we provided a total 100,000 square feet of supplemental warehouse space in two facilities on one of our logistics campuses.

Solution

Due to the nature of the customer’s products, storage required extra spacing between pallets to allow for air flow and avoid mold growth. GXO adjusted the layout of these facilities to meet the customer’s unique requirements, safely storing approximately 5,800 pallets of product. At the customer’s request, we then expanded capacity by another 80,000 square feet at a separate facility.

Results

  • Ensured the quality of the bottled water during storage and shipping, while keeping pace with seasonal demand
  • Responded quickly to accommodate the customer’s need to store an additional 5,000 pallets
  • Leveraged the flexible labor resources on GXO’s campus to fill the first two facilities to capacity within three weeks of implementation and the third facility within two weeks
