XPO Logistics Puts Employee Safety First during COVID-19
XPO teams are working in unprecedented circumstances to move critically important goods through supply chains, including medical products, personal protective equipment (PPE), food and beverages, telecommunication devices, household staples and business supplies. The company provides essential support to industrial, retail and institutional customers, as well as municipalities and government agencies.
Nearly all of XPO’s sites continue to operate, with short-term shutdowns for deep cleaning or sanitization as needed. Customers have uninterrupted access to the company’s full range of transportation services: truckload, less-than-truckload, last mile, expedite, intermodal, drayage, managed transportation and global forwarding.
XPO moved quickly to deploy comprehensive operating protocols that prioritize employee safety while meeting the company’s responsibilities as a designated provider of essential infrastructure services.
XPO has introduced online programs in seven languages to help employees manage change during the pandemic. These include video sessions on health and safety, stress management and working remotely, as well as information on special policies in effect.
