The Nobia brands XPO will be handling will include Magnet, Magnet CKS, Gower, Rapide, Commodore and CIE.
Nobia and XPO began working together in 2017 when XPO won the transport contract for Gower products. Nobia renewed the Gower agreement in 2021 and expanded the relationship with the phased transition of other brands, including Magnet and Rapide in August, Magnet CKS in December, and Commodore and CIE this month. Prior to XPO, Nobia’s UK distribution was handled by a combination of in-house operations and outsourced providers.
Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, said, “Working in partnership with our customer, we have successfully brought together all the Nobia UK brands into a single operating model with significant synergies. The team is delivering a superior Nobia customer experience across the business.”
The partnership includes a dedicated fleet supplemented by additional truck capacity in peak periods, operating from Nobia manufacturing facilities and XPOoperational outbases.
