XPO Logistics goes for another Rhine-Alpine Corridor service
The U.S.-based logistics provider company XPO takes another step in its European business. The company will begin offering a new service on the Rhine-Alpine corridor between Duisburg (Germany) and Domodossola (Italy), focusing on P400 semitrailers that will carry mostly retail and food products and car parts. This is the second route XPO launches between the two countries, as it already runs one between Novara and Duisburg.
According to XPO, the service will run daily between the two hubs. The company is also responsible for other European services apart from those between Germany and Italy, with its focus mainly lying in Spain, France and Luxemburg. Indicatively, some intermodal routes it offers include those between Barcelona – Bettembourg (Luxembourg), Barcelona – Duisburg, Perpignan – Valenton, and Le Boulou – Calais.
The last major development coming from XPO Logistics concerned a Eurotunnel service launched in early 2023 for French company Schneider Electric. Additionally, the company is also active in the UK, where it serves the market with links between England and Scotland, for instance, attempting to reap the benefits of rail by integrating it into its overseas supply chains, too.
