LYON, FRANCE – June 1, 2018 – XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of transport and logistics solutions, has invested in expanding its less-than-truckload (LTL) network in France by another 1,500 square metres of platform capacity. The new site officially opened yesterday in Ussac (19), replacing an older LTL facility. XPO now has 3,100 square metres of LTL capacity and 27 cross-docking stations in Ussac, as well as an adjacent truckload centre.
Operated by a 55-person team, the new platform is capable of processing 1,700 pallets per day, ensuring timely collections and distributions in the region.

The site is equipped with the latest innovations, including a semi-automatic truck rigging system that meets the highest safety standards for workers.
