Video: Interview With Brad Jacobs of XPO Logistics

Transport Topics

"Whether it's a retailer, or a manufacturer, or some other type of business, it's not their core competency to manage their goods and supply chain — that's not what they do for a living. They maybe have a small division that does that. Whereas 3PLs, like XPO Logistics and like some of our great competitors, this is what we do for a living. This what we have experts in. We have people who have been doing it for decades. This is a real core competency of ours, and it makes sense for people to outsource their logistics, in my opinion." — Brad Jacobs, CEO of XPO Logistics, on why he expects to see more outsourcing of transportation services by shippers.

A snippet of Jacobs' interview with Dan Bearth was included in our LiveOnWeb Top 50 Logistics Companies livestream program April 14. Watch the full interview with Jacobs above.

XPO Logistics ranks No. 12 on the 2015 Transport Topics Top 50 Logistics Companies list.
