The logistics partners of B&Q have formed the first ever cross-company team to enter supply chain training contest ‘The Fresh Connection’. XPO Logistics, Wincanton and BRS have formed a team to help develop B&Q’s ‘One Logistics Team operational ethos’.
The ‘One Logistics Team’ approach was made a key requirement by Kingfisher Group when it gave long-term logistics contracts for B&Q last year.
Kevin Bennett, B&Q’s director of store distribution & international supply chain, said: “I am delighted to see our logistics partners come together and truly form ‘One Team’ to develop their people and ways of working.
“The Fresh Connection teaches leadership skills through aligning corporate strategy & operational decision making, which makes it the perfect vehicle to develop a ‘One Team’ mind-set for B&Q’s multi-provider logistics network.”
