MRW, a renowned Spanish supplier of urgent transport and logistics services, has granted a five-year contract to DXC Technology and Nutanix to overhaul MRW's IT infrastructure using hybrid cloud technology. As a result, MRW intends to boost the speed and agility of its delivery operations while also strengthening its defenses against cybersecurity attacks.
“Thousands of clients depend on MRW to ship goods to more than 200 destinations around the globe, Hybrid cloud technologies from DXC and Nutanix provide us with a flexible platform to accelerate MRW’s ambitious transformation and growth plans while ensuring the stability and security we need to protect our operations around the clock.”

Two data centers in Barcelona fuel MRW's logistics operations. MRW anticipates considerable cost savings across several sectors using hybrid cloud solutions based on Kubernetes containers. For example, MRW's DevOps teams will be able to upgrade and deploy apps to the cloud more quickly, reducing the time required to develop creative new services. In addition, the new solution, which is priced on a pay-per-use basis, intends to offer MRW a cost-effective and flexible model for growth and development.
As part of the deal, MRW will use DXC's industry-leading security skills and experience to develop an immutable backup system that will secure and swiftly recover data in a ransomware attack.
“MRW is a leading player in logistics and urgent transportation, which has seen significant growth in the past couple of years in line with the surge in ecommerce, We will work closely with MRW using hybrid cloud technologies to bring greater flexibility and security to their operations.
