XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a leading provider of freight transportation services, today announced the expansion of its less-than-truckload (LTL) Field Management Trainee Program, with a goal of graduating 100 participants in 2022. The comprehensive curriculum creates career paths for high-potential hourly employees, military veterans and recent college graduates, positioning them for promotion.
XPO’s recent investments in the program extend the training from 12 to 14 weeks, blend e-learning and in-person instruction, and assign a mentor to each trainee. Participants are immersed in XPO’s North American LTL business, where they learn the operations for outbound and inbound shipping, pickup-and-delivery and freight assembly. Trainees also shadow sales and support functions, receive freight leadership certification and attend a technology summit.
Upon successful completion of the program, participants are qualified to become LTL freight operations supervisors as the next step toward potential field management roles. The company provides competitive, full-time pay and benefits from day one of the program.
Mario Harik, acting president, less-than-truckload, and chief information officer of XPO Logistics, said, “Two key additions to our LTL field management training are the rotations with our sales and customer experience teams, and the hands-on experience with our LTL technology systems. We’re training future managers in all the drivers of customer satisfaction to ensure a customer-centric culture in our field operations.”

XPO has one of the largest LTL networks in North America, with approximately 21,000 employees, 291 terminals and 13 million shipments in 2021. The company recently opened three new terminals and four fleet maintenance shops, and expanded its trailer manufacturing capacity, as part of a previously announced plan to improve network-wide operating efficiency and support future revenue growth.
