XPO Logistics has released its first annual report on sustainability initiatives which sets out initiatives in North America and Europe in areas, such as safety, engagement, workplace inclusion and environmental protection. XPO intends to use its inaugural report as a baseline for future presentations.
XPO’s revenue rose 12.3 per cent last year to £17.3 billion, while adjusted EBITDA was up 14 per cent to $1.56 billion.
XPO Logistics has set out plans to deploy 5,000 intelligent robots throughout its logistics sites in Europe and North America.
XPO Logistics is to add augmented reality to its Ship XPO consumer self-service platform in the US. The idea is to enable shoppers to use the visualisation technology prior to the delivery of large items, such as sofas, to work out the best place to put them.
Nestlé and XPO Logistics are to co-create a £55m 638,000-square-foot digital distribution centre at East Midlands Gateway Logistics Park in Leicestershire equipped with robotics and automation.
