Saint-Gobain Glass Solutions Case Study

Dedicated, outsourced fleet and drivers integrated to share expertise.

Opportunity

Saint-Gobain, part of the Saint-Gobain Group, is the largest domestic glass processor in Europe. The company serves private, professional and consumer markets, including joiners, plasterers, tradesmen, DIY stores, furniture, refrigeration and the nuclear industry. To meet the complex demands of this customer mix, Saint-Gobain sites sought to develop a comprehensive transport organization that relies in part on outsourced services.

Solution

XPO Logistics is a recognized expert in providing dedicated transport solutions that integrate with customer-owned resources. When selected by Saint-Gobain, we began by analyzing the glass division’s flows, volumes, transport projections, internal resources and seasonality. From there we defined a plan to meet all requirements while reinforcing productivity. We integrated Saint-Gobain drivers smoothly into our operation, ensuring service continuity. This enables us to benefit from their experience in handling glass products while they share in our expertise as a transport leader. Together, we deliver a powerful commitment to customer satisfaction and road safety.

Results

Saint-Gobain Glass has realised important supply chain improvements from its relationship with XPO: we continually monitor and improve transport plans and vehicle loading and routing processes, flexing to accommodate seasonal variations. We also ensure on-time deliveries with the optimal equipment and trained drivers. And we utilize our technology to interact seamlessly with our customer and manage our responsibilities for best-in-class results. By dedicating a modern, state-of-the-art fleet to Saint-Gobain, we have been able to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and increase its safety performance.

It is because XPO Logistics meets our needs at Saint-Gobain that we would like to take our relationship further.
