GREENWICH, Conn. — XPO Logistics Inc., a leading provider of freight transportation services, says that its XPO Connect digital brokerage marketplace garnered more than 600,000 downloads of its Drive XPO mobile app at year-end 2021, more than doubling the cumulative count in 12 months.
Additionally, in the fourth quarter, the company said it had a 74% year-over-year increase in weekly average carrier users on XPO Connect, a substantial increase.
“XPO has prioritized the development of truck brokerage automation for over a decade, leading to our premier XPO Connect offering,” said Drew Wilkerson, XPO’s president of North American transportation. “Now that digital transactions have become a defining trend in our industry, our investments ahead of the curve are attracting significant freight volumes to our platform.”
XPO’s ongoing investments in its digital ecosystem include an expanded API offering that allows shippers to access XPO Connect via Oracle’s Transportation Management cloud system and end-to-end tracking automation for carriers with minimal driver interaction.
XPO Connect uses machine learning to analyze historical data and market conditions. Drivers can download the Drive XPO app at no charge from the iOS and Android stores.
