XPO Posts Solid Q2 Less-Than-Truckload Margin Progress; Pricing Still Favorable

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Matthew Young, CFA |

XPO Logistics got its start in mid-2011, when entrepreneur Brad Jacobs led an equity investment in expedited freight brokerage firm Express-1 Expedited Solutions. Following the transaction, Jacobs launched an acquisition strategy targeting the asset-light U.S. highway brokerage industry. By mid-2013, XPO's strategy evolved beyond truck brokerage; subsequent transactions added heavy-goods last-mile delivery, intermodal, and contract logistics. 2015 marked an even larger shift, with the Norbert Dentressangle deal (European contract logistics) and the purchase of less-than-truckload carrier Con-way. The latter thrust XPO into the asset-heavy trucking industry.
