GXO Logistics, Inc. announced that it is extending its agreement with Avon. GXO has supported Avon?s operations for 15 years. GXO manages a site in Garwolin that supports Avon?s largest factory in Europe with distribution operations for the company?s products to over 50 countries in Europe, Africa and Asia.
GXO?s services include warehousing, value-added services and manufacturing support. GXO has dedicated 2,000 square meters to value-added services such as gift wrapping and personalized holiday messaging on decorative cards that give end consumers a customized unboxing experience. The Garwolin facility also enables GXO to support Avon?s omnichannel activities.
The company provide a wide range of high-quality copacking services, including specialist labeling and QR codes, and each year, its highly skilled team co-packs thousands of different promotional sets, including bags, trays and gift boxes for occasions such as Easter, Advent and Christmas. GXO also helps Avon meet legal requirements and label products for regulatory changes applicable across various markets, and its WMS solutions optimize efficiency and productivity. GXO also provides shared warehousing solutions for Avon and its suppliers that offer immediate access to high-quality space and fuel growth while minimizing operating costs in other markets across Europe.
GXO, in partnership with Avon, pursues ambitious environmental goals at its Garwolin site. The facility has been ISO 9001 certified since 2010 and ISO 14001 certified since 2014. It reduces the amount of waste generated by reusing materials (e.g., cardboard) by recycling about 97% of packaging waste paper and 90% of plastic film and by using electronic records to decrease the amount of printed documentation.
The site also uses LED lighting to reduce energy use, and by optimizing forklift movements, it has reduced the number of battery charges necessary and therefore the amount of energy consumed by the charging stations. GXO also is committed to supporting the communities where its team members live and work. Earlier this year, for example, GXO co-partnered the ?Avon Against Violence ?
Run in Garwolin,? which is a part of Avon Against Violence campaign. More than 70 GXO employees participated in the run held in June.
