XPO Logistics Inc. announced that demand for its XPO Connect digital freight marketplace has reached two global milestones — more than 200,000 downloads of the Drive XPO mobile app and over 65,000 carriers registered on the platform.

The latest numbers represent a 100% increase in app downloads and a 63% increase in carrier registrations since January.

It entered the year with a cumulative 100,000 driver downloads and 40,000 registered carriers since the technology’s 2018 launch, according to the Greenwich, Conn.-based company.

The platform provides virtual access to the company’s multimodal range of transportation services.

The technology uses machine learning to analyze data histories and market conditions in seconds, becoming continually smarter at helping shippers and carriers buy and sell capacity.

XPO ranks No. 3 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North America. — Transport Topics
