We are one of the world’s ten largest providers of transportation and logistics services partnering with well-known brands, such as Sainsbury’s, ASOS, B&Q and adidas. We’ve been voted the third best place to work in the UK by Glassdoor in 2018 and also named the World’s Most Admired Company in trucking, transportation and logistics for 2019 by Fortune (#1 in the industry). We run our business as one highly integrated network of people, technology and physical assets in 32 countries, with concentrations in Europe and North America.
We use our network of more than 100,000 employees and 1,535 locations to help companies manage their goods more efficiently throughout their supply chains. Our people are passionate about helping our customers achieve their strategic objectives by improving their productivity and reducing costs.
As companies increasingly turn to XPO for supply chain solutions, we empower our employees to deliver world-class service through our information technology. We have a global team of approximately 1,700 IT professionals who can innovate quickly for customers. Often, this involves customised solutions that are tailored to specific sectors and adapt to variables such as seasonality.
Today, XPO is on the radar in every industry that requires transportation or logistics. We are working closely with companies to look at their entire supply chains, from point of origin to the end-consumer, to identify opportunities. This collaborative approach is a major reason why our customers trust us with more than 150,000 shipments and five billion inventory units daily.
At XPO Logistics our people are our business. We recognise that every employee brings something different and unique to XPO, to help us to achieve great things and strive to be better.
We stand for integrity, celebrate individuality and know we can always learn more from each other, our customers and the communities we serve. We put safety first – for each other, our communities and our environment. We do things the right way, the first time. Our workplace is collaborative and supportive – we take care of each other so that everyone can bring their best self to work every day. We listen. We pull together individual strengths and perspectives to drive further efficiencies – this respect drives collaboration.
This collaborative and inclusive approach is also reflected in our development culture and our “you grow, we grow” ethos, which lives and breathes within the company. Continuous improvement, pace and growth are all absolutely critical to our success within the fast-paced industry of supply chain and logistics. As a result, we are passionate about equipping our people with the skills, knowledge, and behaviours to meet these demands and to excel.
These are just some of the reasons why XPO Logistics are extremely proud to be supporting The Big Logistics Diversity Challenge!
