XPO’s Digital Freight Marketplace Drives Efficiency at Herc Rentals

XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a leading global provider of transportation and logistics solutions, has partnered with Herc Rentals to seamlessly connect Herc’s 270 North America locations. XPO’s Managed Transportation group tailored its digital platform for the equipment rental company’s US and Canadian branches to help create new efficiencies.

Working together, we’re building tools that make transportation in the rental industry more cost-efficient.”
