XPO, a leading provider of innovative and sustainable end-to-end logistics solutions across Europe, has been awarded the Logistics and Transportation Education Project Award for the company’s Junior Talent Program initiative by Foro de Logística, an employment and training organization in the logistics and transport sector.
The Talent and Logistics Awards recognise the work done by companies in the logistics and transport sector to manage and develop talent. Presented yesterday at LogTalent, part of the Logistics & Automation exhibition in Madrid, the awards aim to reward the initiatives and actions of organisations and companies in the logistics and transport sector that play a key role in the sector and society at large, as well as in promoting training and job creation.
Mayte Galeano, human resources director, Southern Europe and Morocco, XPO Logistics, said: "We are honoured and proud to receive this award from Foro de Logística, which shares our commitment to quality employment and training in our industry. At XPO, we are dedicated to attracting and retaining talent in logistics by collaborating, innovating, and launching initiatives such as the Junior Talent Program to raise awareness about our role and the economic engine of the sector, and, above all, to train the professionals of the future".

The program allows students to rotate between positions in sales, solution design, finance, full truckload, less-than-truckload, global forwarding, technology support and operational excellence, providing them a broad-based perspective of the company.
