Full Truckload

XPO is the world's second largest freight broker, with technology that pinpoints the optimal carrier per load.

Critical Capacity

Our massive truckload network is essential for shippers, particularly when capacity is tight. But, it’s our fierce commitment to world-class service that ultimately ensures your peace of mind. We take a do-or-die approach to on-time performance, and we follow through with real-time track and trace.

 

Our carrier management processes are rigorous: we monitor safety ratings, insurance qualifications and operating authorities. Algorithms in our Freight Optimizer system use carrier profiles to source the best possible solution based on load characteristics.
