XPO Logistics Pilots Labor Productivity Tools in Less-Than-Truckload
Machine learning optimizes dock operations
XPO's latest optimization tools compare real-time productivity rates with the number of active dock workers, using machine learning to predict how adjustments in labor levels affect productivity. The tools track motor moves (goods moved from dock to truck) against production targets and analyze productivity gaps to improve performance. The LTL pilot follows the company's successful introduction of workforce planning analytics in its warehouse operations in March.
The company expects to conclude the LTL pilot program in the third quarter and begin a phased roll-out of the new tools to its 274 US terminals.
