XPO Logistics Inaugurates its First ‘Last Mile’ Operations Centre in Spain

4 June 2018 – Eje Prime

XPO Logistics, the provider of transport and logistics solutions, is expanding its service in Spain. The group has recently launched two centres in Puerto de Sevilla, which together span almost 10,000m2. Both facilities are located in the Puerto’s ZAL (Logistics Activities Zone) and one of them is going to be the site of XPO’s first last mile operations centre in Spain.

XPO is also working on additional extensions to its last mile network in other Andalucían provinces, including opening an operations centre in Málaga dedicated exclusively to that activity.

This intensive service logistics area consists of specialised delivery, at-home assembly, and installation of large consumer products, such as furniture and household appliances. The 50 loading bays at the plants in Sevilla will be used to support the growing demand for the company’s last mile service, as well as its palleted cargo network (LTL) in Spain and Portugal.

XPO is present in all of the Andalucían provinces, where it operates a total of ten centres, owned and leased, including these two centres in the ZAL of Puerto de Sevilla. The company serves more than 500 clients of varying sizes and sectors across the region. XPO’s palleted cargo network in Spain includes 70 distribution centres and transports more than 4 million pallets per year, making it the national leader in this segment of activity.
