XPO Logistics expanding US last mile network

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

XPO Logistics plans to nearly double its current last mile footprint in the US to 85 service hubs by late 2018.

The company estimates that the expansion, which is currently underway, will “position its last mile footprint within approximately 90% of the US population”.

XPO expects to open its next eight hubs in Birmingham, Alabama; Buffalo, New York State; Jacksonville, Florida; Long Island, New York State; Los Angeles, California; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Washington, D.C.

XPO currently carries out nearly 13m home and commercial deliveries a year, with the majority including installation and assembly of appliances, large electronics, furniture and other hard-to-handle items.

Troy Cooper, chief operating officer of XPO Logistics, said, “We’re continuing to make significant investments in our facilities, technology, staffing and training to deliver world-class solutions for our customers. As the leading national last mile network specializing 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.”
