BT will shift around 300 employees to GXO Logistics Inc as part of a supply chain outsourcing deal between BT Group and GXO.
BT’s supply chain provides logistics support across all of BT Group’s operations, including supporting the Group’s fixed and mobile network build activities by transporting stock and replenishing supply stores, helping to connect more than 15 million customers.
BT will be outsourcing its core warehouse and transport capabilities, while ensuring that the Group’s next generation network build plans remain on track. BT in a news statement said it will retain critical expertise to ensure continuity of service.
“Our partnership with GXO brings us to an important milestone in our transformation programme as we simplify BT,” said Cyril Pourrat, Chief Procurement and Supply Chain Officer at BT Group. “By working with a leading logistics company, we’ll create opportunities to improve our service and support BT’s fixed and mobile network build plans.”
BT in November 2021 announced that it achieved its £1 billion cost savings target 18 months early and brought forward its FY25 target for £2 billion of savings to FY24.
