A global leader in logistics
Founded in 1989, XPO Logistics has grown to become one of the largest logistics providers in the world. Its services encompass everything from global forwarding and last-mile delivery to managed transportation and contract logistics.
With over 100,000 employees and operations in over 30 countries, XPO Logistics is a key player in the logistics industry.
The problem to solve
A defining difference between XPO Logistics and its competitors is its tech-savvy approach to logistics – but it wasn’t always that way.
In 2011 XPO realized the systems they had in place lacked efficiency and involved many manual procedures, which slowed the process and reduced accuracy.
In order to remain competitive, they needed to refine their current processes, improve their systems, and lower their costs.
They approached Tiburon Data to find a solution to modernize the order process and increase efficiency.
The Tiburon team went above and beyond our expectations, even building us a custom portal to see their process in real-time. They were not asked to develop this, rather doing so as a value addition. They overwhelmed us with their capability.Jonathan Turner- SVP of XPO Logistics
