XPO Logistics, Inc.: XPO Logistics Implements Planned Workforce Reduction in Less-Than-Truckload Business

Cuts approximately 190 non-sales positions, primarily in administration,
management and back office

Redesigns organization to enhance profitability and customer service

Expects actions to reduce costs by more than $20 million annually

GREENWICH, Conn. - January 29, 2016 -
XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO) today announced further progress with its
previously announced plan for synergies in its less-than-truckload (LTL)
business acquired from Con-way Inc. Approximately 160 non-sales positions
have been eliminated as the company continues to migrate to a more efficient
LTL organization. Most of the reductions were in administrative, management
and back office functions, and impacted less than 1% percent of the LTL
workforce in North America. Another 30 positions were eliminated in other
parts of the company, primarily to address redundancies created by the

Collectively, the actions are expected to reduce annual costs by more than $20
million against a targeted operating profit improvement of $170 million to
$210 million over two years. To date, approximately $50 million of expected
annualized savings have been achieved in the three months since the company
acquired Con-way on October 30, 2015.

Tony Brooks, president of LTL for XPO Logistics, said, "Our plan for LTL is
very much on track for our near-term and long-term goals. The integration of
Con-way has given us the opportunity to engineer a leaner, more
results-oriented LTL operation while improving on our industry-leading
customer service levels. We plan to double the number of strategic account
managers over the next few months. Our focus is on growing LTL by expanding
our service capabilities and cross-selling LTL to XPO's full customer base."

Brooks continued, "Our new organizational structure is based on clearly
delineated P&L responsibilities and customer service accountability at the
field level. We're also optimizing our footprint to increase the efficient
use of our capacity, improve transit times in key lanes and make our entire
network more productive."

XPO Logistics is the second largest LTL provider in North America and the
leading LTL provider in Western Europe. The company's LTL business in North
America services 99% of U.S. postal codes, and offers more next-day and
two-day lanes than any other carrier. XPO Logistics has global transportation
capacity of approximately 19,000 owned tractors and 46,000 owned trailers,
with another 10,000 trucks contracted through independent owner-operators,
and access to more than 50,000 independent carriers.
