XPO Logistics to launch Drive XPO mobile technology in Europe this spring

XPO Logistics will expand its Drive XPO mobile technology to Europe this spring, following a successful launch in North America.

The app, designed for carriers, supports real-time visibility across transportation modes and integrates carrier operations with daily productivity tools.

Drive XPO’s functionality is powered by the company’s proprietary Freight Optimizer system, the global platform for XPO’s non-asset transportation services. According to XPO, Drive XPO helps to “reduce empty miles, lower fuel waste, reduce road stress and make the customer service process more dynamic”.

Drive XPO displays load postings in real time, with details such as origin, destination, freight type, timing and shipper, as well as special handling or equipment needs. While en route, carriers use the same app to become more efficient with refuelling, layovers, traffic avoidance and other daily decisions.

XPO asserts that this combination of mobile capabilities — load procurement and productivity — is the “next generation” of capacity management.
