XPO Logistics Invests in New Platform for Less-Than-Truckload Transport in Ussac, Near Brive-la-Gaillarde (19)

XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of transport and logistics solutions, has invested in expanding its less-than-truckload (LTL) network in France by another 1,500 square metres of platform capacity. The new site officially opened yesterday in Ussac (19), replacing an older LTL facility. XPO now has 3,100 square metres of LTL capacity and 27 cross-docking stations in Ussac, as well as an adjacent truckload centre.

 

Operated by a 55-person team, the new platform is capable of processing 1,700 pallets per day, ensuring timely collections and distributions in the region. In addition, the increase in capacity gives shippers more flexibility in managing business peaks and fluctuations in volumes. The site is equipped with the latest innovations, including a semi-automatic truck rigging system that meets the highest safety standards for workers.

 

"We’re proud to expand our LTL network in France with state-of the-art capacity, strategically located to serve the south-central region,” said Luis Gomez, managing director of transport, XPO Logistics Europe. “The significant investments we’re making in our operations are driven by one goal: to support our customers in achieving their growth objectives.”
