ADAMA Case Study

Flexible inventory management of wet and dry agrochemicals at a top tier COMAH site.

Opportunity

ADAMA Agricultural Solutions is a leader in crop protection, providing herbicides, insecticides, plant growth regulators and seed treatments to farmers in over 100 countries. Its network includes the UK, where ADAMA selected XPO Logistics to manage its complex warehousing and distribution needs.

Solution

Our XPO team responded with tailored solutions for ADAMA at a top tier COMAH warehouse in Derbyshire. The site has the capacity to store large volumes of wet and dry agrochemical products, and the ability to flex up and down with both seasonal demand and unpredictable weather impacts. We drew on our expertise in the handling of hazardous products to go beyond receipt, storage and order fulfillment for this customer. Our value-added services include bulk repacking into smaller units, relabeling and sample management. Our technology manages stocking and order processing, and provides constant visibility during handling and distribution.

Results

XPO’s solutions have increased flexibility and capacity for ADAMA’s logistics operations, while our technology has reduced costs for outbound flows through state-of-the-art transportation management. ADAMA’s distribution in Scotland has been enhanced with daily next-day deliveries that improve service to customers in this market. We will continue to explore innovations that drive efficiencies throughout ADAMA’s supply chain and address the specific needs of its end markets.

XPO Logistics has worked hard to understand our business, and the service levels our industry demands, and its proactive “can do” approach strongly echoes our own corporate values. Following improvements to our customer service levels and also the quality of locally re-packaged product, we look forward to working in partnership with XPO Logistics as we continue to develop and grow our business into the future.
