In addition, GXO has dedicated 2,000m² of space to complete various value-added services, including gift wrapping and personalised holiday messaging on decorative cards.
GXO Poland, Czech Republic, and Romania managing director Jean Luc Bessade said: “Across our operations, we are proud to support Avon’s evolving needs, including helping them adapt to new regulations in their markets and providing co-packing and value-added services.
“Through our high-quality service and our open communications and cooperation, we’ve been able to grow our business with Avon over many years. We very much look forward to expanding and continuously enhancing our partnership.”
GXO said that its partnership with Avon also ensures the adoption of sustainable practices at the Garwolin site, which contributes to a circular economy by minimising the amount of waste generated and reusing materials, including cardboard.
For instance, GXO said it recycles 97% of packaging waste paper, as well as approximately 90% of plastic film, by leveraging electronic records to decrease the amount of printed documentation.
Avon Logistics senior manager Andrew Wills said: “GXO has been an outstanding partner since 2008, helping us pursue our mission to create a better world for women by supporting their entrepreneurship, courage and ideas for success.
“GXO’s value-added services have helped cement the partnership between our companies. GXO has also helped us meet our ESG [environmental, social, and governance] goals.”
