XPO Logistics Inc. will expand its less-than-truckload network with the openings of two terminals, the company announced April 18.
The Adelanto, Calif., terminal is a 51,500-square-foot facility that includes 99 doors and a freight assembly center. It is expected to open this month. The Conley, Ga., facility is 55,000 square feet with 97 doors that is expected to open in May.
“We’re making strategic investments to optimize our network for the long term,” Chief Information Officer Mario Harik said. “In California, demand is on the rise from manufacturing and retail expansion in the High Desert area. Atlanta is one of the largest LTL regions in the South and a freight gateway into Florida. We’ll continue to add capacity where it will be most effective in driving efficiency, growth and returns.”

The Adelanto terminal will expand operations in San Bernardino County. XPO has seen an influx of business development there that is driving demand for LTL services. The Conley facility will be a sister site to an existing terminal and freight assembly center in Atlanta. It will add pickup-and-delivery capacity in a high-volume metropolitan area.
XPO said the announcement marks its latest progress with its five-point LTL action plan introduced in October. The main components are to continuously improve network efficiencies, continue to deploy proprietary pricing technology, increase the annual graduate count in its truck driver training network, increase trailer production and add 900 net new doors by the end of 2023.
