Expert site selection and startup

XPO is a market leader in contract logistics in North America. The majority of the sites in our vast footprint are dedicated operations, with the optimal locations determined by our in-house team of data scientists, working in collaboration with our customers and their sales data.  


Once the analysis of your specific needs is complete, our buying power and real estate relationships allow us to quickly secure the site and begin configuring it to your specifications.  Our next-generation technology suite allows for rapid integration with your systems, providing unparalleled visibility into your e-commerce supply chain.


We also offer a “plug and play” option through our XPO Direct™ network of shared-space distribution centers. This gives our e-commerce customers a way to position inventory close to consumer densities, shortening delivery times and leveraging our technology and other resources. For parcel-type deliveries, XPO Direct™ facilitates two-day delivery from our hubs to the consumer’s front door. 

Case Study: Fashion

Opportunity

A global fashion retailer expanded in the US, opening brick-and-mortar locations and offering an e-commerce experience designed to mimic the feeling of in-store shopping. This required a dedicated e-commerce distribution center that would be fully operational before the holiday peak shopping season.

 

Once XPO was selected, our logistics experts delivered on every requirement, including site selection and labor and transportation cost forecasting. We implemented a full e-commerce channel solution capable of flexing in a dynamic marketplace, and we were up and running before the holiday peak.
