XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO) is one of the fastest growing providers of transportation logistics services in North America. We're the fourth largest freight brokerage firm, the largest provider of heavy goods, last-mile logistics, and the largest manager of expedited shipments, with growing positions in managed transportation, global freight forwarding, less-than-truckload brokerage and intermodal. We facilitate more than 20,000 deliveries a day, using our relationships with more than 24,000 ground, sea and air carriers to serve over 9,500 customers in the manufacturing, industrial, retail, commercial, life sciences and government sectors. XPO is built to deliver constant growth in capacity, passionate service and technological innovation through our 92 locations in the United States and Canada.
We have a lot of opportunity for growth. Even though we’ve more than quadrupled the size of the business in two years, we currently serve less than 2% of the estimated $50 billion addressable market for freight brokerage. Our acquired positions in the fastest-growing areas of logistics ensure that XPO is positioned as a single-source provider with deep capacity to meet our customers' needs. Most important, we’ve instilled a high-octane, performance-driven culture focused on delivering world-class service to our customers.
Technology fuels our growth
Innovation is in our DNA. We believe that technology can truly help optimize customer workflows and revolutionize how goods are shipped. We plan to transform transportation logistics through technology – and our multi-million dollar commitment to IT underscores its importance in our growth strategy.
Our IT blueprint includes robust software applications for our truckload and LTL brokerage business. Phase one of our platform was put in place in 2012 – we've implemented three major upgrades since then, as well as numerous enhancements. As we continue to execute our master plan, a stream of incremental benefits will pour into our customer relationships.
