GXO Logistics is laying off 123 workers at a facility in Kenosha, Wisconsin, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act notice dated Dec. 14.
The entire Kenosha facility will cease operations starting Feb. 13, impacting all GXO employees, including PIT operators, supply chain analysts and managers, according to the notice. Permanent separations will begin Feb. 13, and occur throughout the following 14 days.
A GXO spokesperson said in an email that its client decided to manage its own operations in Kenosha. “As a result, most of the employees will be offered employment with the client at the same facility,” they said.
The logistic company’s Kenosha closure follows the cessation of operations at two Texas facilities earlier this month, where the company provided services on behalf of Pepsi. Earlier in July, GXO also announced it would lay off 144 workers at its facility in Racine County, Wisconsin with the intention of relocating its warehouse operations to northern Kentucky.
GXO Logistics, a spinoff of XPO Logistics, passed its 1 year mark as a standalone company in August, separating its contract logistics business from its LTL and other cargo transport services, according to a press release.
Despite the warehouse closures, GXO delivered its highest-ever quarterly revenue of $2.3 billion in Q3, up 16% YoY, according to an earnings report. The logistics company also signed new contracts with both existing and new customers, including Boeing, Nike and Samsung, among others, CEO Malcom Wilson said in an earnings call last month.
