Supply Chain

XPO is the second largest contract logistics provider worldwide, with approximately 194 million square feet of facility space.

Scale and Experience

When it comes to choosing a logistics partner, industry-specific expertise, technology, engineering, scale and scope of services are all important considerations. XPO manages a wide variety of goods – from apparel, cosmetics, electronics and food, to aerospace parts, chemicals, medical equipment and more.

 

Our range of services includes contract logistics, highly engineered solutions and high-value-add services, such as kitting, packaging, personalization and reverse logistics. We have efficient processes in place for the management of returned merchandise, including inspection, refurbishment, recycling, disposal, refunding, warranty management and return-to-retail.

Advanced Automation

We invest approximately $550 million a year in technology, in large part to fund logistics innovation.

XPO is deploying industry-leading innovation across our expansive network of warehouses in North America and Europe. Our focus is on robotics, autonomous vehicles, automated sortation systems, drones and other cutting-edge technologies that speed goods through the supply chain.

 

We are equally invested in big data and machine learning. For example, we have developed predictive analytics that can forecast demand and the future rate of returns by product. Our proprietary warehouse management system accelerates logistics start-ups and adapts automation as needs change.
