XPO Logistics has adapted to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to safeguard its workforce and maintain continuity of vital services. The company is using a combination of protective measures, technology and virtual communications to help keep employees safe in all 30 countries where it operates.
XPO teams are working to move critically important goods through supply chains, including medical products, personal protective equipment, food and beverages, telecommunication devices, household goods and business supplies. The company provides essential support to industrial, retail and institutional customers, as well as government agencies.
Nearly all of XPO’s locations globally continue to operate, with short-term shutdowns for deep cleaning as needed. Customers continue to have access to the company’s full range of transportation services: dedicated and non-dedicated truckload, less-than-truckload, last mile, managed transportation and global forwarding.
Additionally, XPO is aiding national, regional and local authorities with crisis management. In Spain, the company is distributing masks and other protective measures for the Junta of Castilla and León. In the US, XPO has partnered with the New York City Emergency Management Department for the distribution of life-sustaining supplies to people isolated in the epicentre of the pandemic.
XPO deployed comprehensive operating protocols that prioritise employee safety while meeting the company’s responsibilities as a designated provider of essential infrastructure services.
