DALLAS — XPO Logistics Inc. will lay off 304 workers at an AllianceTexas distribution center in April, according to a notice filed with the Texas Workforce Commission.

An XPO customer is taking over the distribution center operations and is interviewing displaced workers for jobs with it, said a letter from Richard Valitutto, XPO’s senior vice president and general counsel. The customer is DJO, an orthopedic device maker that moved its global headquarters from California to Lewisville, Texas, in late 2018.

Workers who aren’t retained could be offered positions at other XPO operations in the Fort Worth area, Valitutto’s letter said.

In January, XPO said it’s considering strategic options including the possible sale or spinoff of one or more business units.

The Greenwich, Conn.-based transportation conglomerate operates 26 supply chain, last-mile locations and terminals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. XPO ranks No. 1 on the Transport Topics Top 50 list of the largest logistics companies in North America and No. 3 on the TT Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers.
