Malcolm Wilson, chief executive officer of XPO Logistics Europe, said, “We thank Gartner for recognizing XPO’s steadfast commitment to excellence throughout a year of significant change. The visibility provided by our technology during the pandemic, the resilience of our team and the agility of our operations all proved to be critical in keeping customer goods moving through supply chains in 2020.”
According to Gartner, “Seemingly overnight digital dexterity and end-to-end supply chain visibility became a crucial component in navigating through the crisis. For shippers that were not prepared with the necessary technology in place to face the challenges head-on, the alternative was to leverage the technology and visibility of their 3PLs. For companies using 3PLs for outsourcing, the realization that their performance is heavily dependent on their 3PL’s capabilities is now unquestionable.”*
