Troy Cooper, president of XPO Logistics, said, “It’s gratifying to support the communities where we operate by creating thousands of jobs this year. Our retail and e-commerce customers are looking forward to a strong holiday season, with continued momentum into 2021. We expect that about 40% of our seasonal hires will move into permanent positions after the holidays.”
