XPO Logistics Runs in Lyon with A.S.O.

XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of transport and logistics solutions, contributed to the success of the Run In Lyon challenge event on October 1st. The company provided event transportation services and also participated in the race organized by Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O.).

XPO transported A.S.O.’s safety barriers, route markers and other equipment, and provided four light trucks with tailgates where food and drinks were staged for participants. The Run In Lyon is the latest collaboration between A.S.O. and XPO, which supports A.S.O. in the Tour de France, the Paris Marathon and the Tour de France à la Voile, as well as several “Mud Days” and “Run In” races throughout France.

XPO sponsored more than 100 employees from throughout France for the Run In Lyon. Participants could choose to run a 10km route, a half-marathon or a full marathon.

Malcolm Wilson, chief executive officer of XPO Logistics Europe, said, “We are proud to provide our expertise in event transportation to A.S.O. once again, particularly as Lyon is the site of our European headquarters. Congratulations to all our XPO colleagues who crossed the finish line and to those who were brave in the attempt!”
