GREENWICH, Conn. — XPO Logistics, a global provider of transportation and logistics solutions, has been awarded a supply chain contract by global power provider Cummins to support Cummins customers worldwide.

XPO Logistics will operate Cummins’ primary parts distribution center starting this month, managing approximately 800 workers and over 2,700 orders shipped daily.

The 1 million square foot facility in Memphis, Tennessee, distributes component parts, rebuild kits and remanufactured engines as the principal restock hub for Cummins’ warehouses worldwide, and supports thousands of Cummins dealers in North America.

XPO will provide custom-designed technology for parts stocking and control, fulfillment, shipping and returns management.

“The employees and the important work they do each day at our distribution center is critical to the success of our customers and to Cummins,” said Clarence Carr, director, Memphis Distribution Center. “We will work with XPO to ensure that the operations and the work environment continue to be of the highest quality and something we can all take pride in. We will continue to look for new and innovative ways to improve our work and our services.”

Cummins has multiple operations in Memphis and has been involved with the Memphis community for more than 50 years.

Cummins now employs a workforce of more than 1,600 across its remanufacturing and distribution operations in Memphis and last year employees spent over 4,000 hours volunteering in the Memphis community.

“We’re proud to support Cummins in its commitment to superior customer service and supply chain excellence,” said Troy Cooper, XPO Logistics chief operating officer. “We look forward to adding significant value to the Memphis distribution center with cutting-edge technology and global best practices for enhanced productivity, quality and cost-effectiveness.”
