XPO Logistics will deploy 5,000 AGVs
XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of transportation and logistics solutions, has announced plans to deploy 5,000 intelligent robots throughout its logistics sites in North America and Europe. The AGVs will supplement XPO’s existing workforce and support future growth.

XPO has a strategic partnership with robotics manufacturer GreyOrange that makes XPO the exclusive logistics provider for use of its robots in North America, the United Kingdom and eight European countries.

Bradley Jacobs, chief executive officer of XPO Logistics, says: "We’ve developed our logistics technology to integrate the latest intelligent automation and adapt it at lightning speed. This allows us to dramatically improve fulfillment time and cut costs. The addition of 5,000 collaborative robots will make our logistics operations safer and more productive in picking, packing and sortation. These are important benefits for our customers – particularly in the e-commerce and omnichannel retail sectors, where order speed and accuracy are essential ways to compete."

The autonomous robots are part of a modular goods-to-person system that also includes mobile storage racks and fulfillment stations. The latest robotics implementation is part of XPO’s planned USD450 million investment in technology this year.
