Summary

XPO Logistics is a diversified trucking and logistics company. Acquisitions have contributed meaningfully to the firm's current profile. Ignoring the upcoming contract-logistics segment spin-off, roughly 62% of XPO's total gross revenue comes from transportation operations, including asset-light truck brokerage, intermodal, last mile, and global forwarding, as well as asset-based less-than-truckload shipping. Its global contract logistics division (outsourced warehousing and supply-chain services), which has a large presence in Europe, constitutes about 38% of sales.Within its transportation segment, XPO's two largest service offerings are LTL trucking (35% of segment gross revenue) and freight brokerage (27%).
