For the fifth year in a row, XPO employees in the Spain and Portugal are part of this solidarity effort in support or people in need of food aid

XPO, a leading provider of innovative and sustainable end-to-end logistics solutions across Europe, is collaborating with the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL) for the fifth consecutive year, donating 1,280 kilos of food to be distributed to the most needy through the Federation's 54 centres throughout Spain.

Volunteers from the company began dropping off their donations on 22 November in boxes provided by FESBAL and located at each of the XPO´s transport and logistics sites and offices in the Iberian Peninsula, and reached one tonne of food.

Massimo Marsili, managing director - Southern Europe and Morocco, XPO Logistics, highlights the social commitment of the company's employees: "One of the important values we share at XPO is solidarity, helping each other as a team, the communities in which we operate and especially those in the most vulnerable situations. Our teams are proud to be able to help those who need it most, especially at this time of year. I would like to thank and congratulate FESBAL, with whom we have been collaborating since 2018, for the essential work they do".

Francisco Greciano, director of the Spanish Federation of Food Banks, points out: "Achieving a society where there is no food poverty is a challenge that is only possible with the involvement of citizens and committed companies. Throughout Spain there are families, children and people living alone or homeless who have great difficulty in meeting their basic needs and are forced to turn to one of the more than 6,000 charitable organisations we support in their search of food. The work of food distribution is fundamental in making this possible, so we at the Food Banks are grateful for XPO's commitment to helping the most vulnerable".
