XPO opens new hubs ahead of Black Friday

XPO Logistics has completed the opening of eight last mile logistics hubs ahead of Black Friday, the start of the holiday shopping season.

In a statement issued yesterday (9 November), XPO said the hubs are part of its previously announced plans to expand its last mile footprint to 85 hubs by late 2018.

Troy Cooper, chief operating officer of XPO Logistics, said: “We’re anticipating strong demand this holiday season, as more people are purchasing heavy goods online. Our last mile expansion is directly related to the rapid growth of e-commerce and omnichannel retail. The scale of our network speeds fulfillment, while our technology gives retailers, e-tailers and consumers control over the shopping experience. These are critical components of ensuring consumer satisfaction with digital purchases.”

XPO’s North American last mile network now includes 53 hubs. The newest facilities are located in: Birmingham, Ala.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Milwaukee, Wisc.; Savannah, Ga.; Tulsa, Okla.; and Washington, D.C.
