XPO Logistics Announces First Quarter 2012 Results

Adds Brokerage Cold-starts and Strategic Hires

Following the opening of its second truck brokerage cold-start in Ann Arbor, Mich., in April, the company opened its newest branch in Dallas, Texas, on May 1, 2012. Dallas branch president Doug George has 18 years of management and sales experience in transportation, including positions with AFN, Ryder Integrated Logistics, Inc. and Roadway Express, Inc.

To support the scaling up of its operations and workforce, the company has announced two key appointments: Louis Amo has been named vice president–carrier procurement and operations; and Marie Fields has been appointed director of training.

Mr. Amo has 15 years of transportation and carrier management experience, including positions with Union Pacific Corporation, Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation, and SABIC Innovative Plastics Holding BV (formerly GE Plastics). Ms. Fields has worked in the logistics industry for 15 years, initially with American Backhaulers, Inc. as a dispatcher and carrier sales representative, and then for 12 years with C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., with responsibilities for training and on-boarding new hires, systems training and sales development.

New Website at xpologistics.com

On May 9, 2012, the company launched a comprehensive new website at www.xpologistics.com. Online functionality includes the ability to request a quote, track a load, register as a carrier, apply for employment, and access investor resources. The new site marks the first of several customer-facing web and mobile products planned for release this year, including self-service freight management tools for shippers.
