XPO is the second largest freight brokerage provider worldwide, with deep capacity and industry-leading technology. In Europe, we have approximately 4,760 active carriers in our network for domestic and international transport. We use a proprietary suite of IT tools to access this capacity, performing real-time analysis of lanes, pricing, carrier ratings, fleet and market conditions matched against customer requirements.
Because our brokerage offices are integrated with our broader transport operations for owned fleet, we can be responsive and price-competitive at all levels: from subcontracting one pallet to full truckload service. Equipment includes tailgate trucks, ADR vehicles, jumbo trailers, refrigerated trucks and flatbed trailers for the transport of packed, bulk, hazardous or temperature-controlled goods. Services are available on a fixed or transactional basis, and customer-owned trailers can be incorporated into our solutions.
All of our brokerage carriers are vetted for quality and reliability. We have strong controls in place to manage these relationships with respect to safety records, certifications, compliance and performance. We use the powerful algorithms in our bespoke Freight Optimizer technology to negotiate capacity, while our robust My Transport Europe platform provides seamless visibility of freight in transit, from origin to destination.
