Hershey Co. will change third-party logistics providers at its distribution center in Derry Township, Pa., ending its relationship with DHL Supply Chain and switching to XPO Logistics Inc.

DHL filed a layoff notice with the Pennsylvania state government, stating that 116 employees will lose their jobs by the end of the year.

However, DHL will retain control of the warehouse operations where 450 workers are located, according to Hershey.

DHL also wrote that some of the employees affected in the Derry Township location could be transferred to other locations in Pennsylvania.

XPO ranks No. 1 on the Transport Topics Top 50 list of the largest logistics companies in North America. DHL is No. 4.
