Perscommuniqué | Lyon, France | 30 november 2022
XPO, a leading provider of freight transportation services, has been awarded the premium label for "Responsible Transport and Logistics" by the National Road Transport Federation (FNTR) in France. The premium label attests to XPO’s culture of corporate responsibility and the company’s proactive policies for environmental, social and governance (ESG) advancement.
FNTR worked with the independent advisory group EthiFinance to create the first ESG rating in France dedicated to the road transport sector. To obtain the premium "Responsible Transport and Logistics" label, XPO had to achieve an overall score of at least 75 out of 100 from among all companies with more than 250 employees evaluated by EthiFinance.

This award is shared by all our teams in France — together, we take concrete actions to be a responsible leader in transport and logistics. Importantly, the label also recognizes our CSR commitment to our customers".
