North America’s largest logistics company, XPO Logistics, has announced plans to nearly double its current last mile footprint to 85 service hubs by late 2018.
The expansion, which is currently underway, will reportedly position XPO’s last mile footprint within approximately 90 per cent of the US population, further reducing transit times.
XPO is the largest last mile logistics provider for heavy goods in North America, with industry-leading consumer satisfaction scores enabled by technology. According to XPO, it has facilitated around 13 million home and commercial deliveries, with the majority including installation and assembly of appliances, large electronics, furniture and other hard-to-handle items each year.
“We’re continuing to make significant investments in our facilities, technology, staffing and training to deliver world-class solutions for our customers,” said XPO Chief Operating Officer, Troy Cooper.
“As the leading national last mile network specialising in heavy goods, we’re uniquely positioned to provide a consistent consumer experience that protects retail brands. Now we’re making it even faster and more cost effective to transport goods direct to homes.”
