National drayage capacity drives down cost through network design, consolidation, mode shifting and scale.
XPO facilitates time-critical, high-value or high-security shipments, usually on very short notice. XPO provides three types of expedite service: ground transportation via a network of independent contract carriers; air charter transportation facilitated by proprietary, web-based technology that solicits bids and assigns loads to aircraft; and a managed transportation network that is the largest web-based expedite management technology in North America.
XPO facilitates freight shipments by ground, air and ocean for origins and destinations within North America, to or from North America, or between foreign locations. Services are provided through a network of market experts who provide local oversight in thousands of key trade areas worldwide. XPO’s global forwarding service can arrange shipments with no restrictions as to size, weight or mode, and is OTI and NVOCC licensed.
As the third largest intermodal provider in North America, XPO facilitates long-haul, containerized shipments by rail, often with a drayage (trucking) component at either end. Rail transportation can be less expensive under certain circumstances and is always more fuel-efficient than long-haul trucking. Rail is also a key mode of transportation in and out of Mexico, where the manufacturing base is booming due to a trend toward near-shoring.
XPO facilitates the delivery of goods to their final destination, most often to consumer households. XPO specializes in two areas of last mile service: arranging the delivery and installation of heavy goods such as appliances, furniture and electronics, often with a white glove component; and providing logistics solutions to retailers and distributors to support their e-commerce supply chains and omni-channel distribution strategies. Capacity is sourced from a network of independent contract carriers and technicians.
XPO's less-than-truckload network offers fast, dependable and damage-free LTL service with an industry-leading reputation for on-time pickup and delivery. We cover 99% of all U.S. zip codes, including Alaska and Hawaii, with deep capacity and over 400 service centers.
Highly efficient solutions that drive down cost through improved network design, consolidation, mode shifting and other methodologies.
XPO provides ground transportation of cargo for an amount that requires the full limit of a dry van trailer, either by dimensional or weight limit. In North America, the cargo limits are 53 linear feet or a 44,000-lb. weight capacity; in most of Europe the limits are 13.5 linear meters (44.3 feet) or 34 tonnes authorized loaded weight, but vary by country. Truckload cargo typically remains on a single vehicle from the point of origin to the destination, and is not handled en route.
