  • We collect automotive parts from a wide range of suppliers in South Wales and the Midlands delivering these to the production plant in the North-East of England, working the vehicles day and night and operating the customers scanning equipment supplying them with real time Advanced notification down to SKU level. No formal contract but have been operating for over 6 years.

ADM Oils

X2’s 4PL solution was an excellent fit for our needs, providing the flexibility and scalability of a multi haulier solution without the complexities of managing multiple supplier relationships. This makes our life simpler by providing a reliable service, reducing costs and overheads and ultimately, giving us a competitive advantage

The X2 team demonstrated a sound knowledge of our business, which rapidly resulted in a smooth, seamless implementation. This is something we truly value. We enjoy working with them and look forward to building a long-standing partnership

Kent Foods Limited

Due to substantial growth within our business, we began a process to source extra support for a distribution requirement. X2 where already making regular visits to our sites, through one of our major suppliers, which made sense to engage with them.

After trail runs, it became very apparent that the knowledge and capability applied by the X2 team would make them the perfect fit for Kent Foods multi-site distribution needs.

X2 now play a major part in our distribution, plus we really enjoy working with them.
