ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Schnucks has found a new operator for its warehouse in Kinloch and is accusing the former operator of breach of contract. XPO Logistics Supply Chain of Connecticut had already filed a lawsuit against Schnucks, accusing it of improperly withholding more than a million dollars and opening the facility before it was ready.
In a counter-suit, Schnucks says XPO essentially failed to perform in a professional manner and was put on notice last year that its continued failure could lead to contract termination. They also allege $12 million in damages.
Schnucks has hired Penske Logistics to take over operations. The Kinloch distribution center was built with the intention of being more efficient than its Bridgeton facilities.
