XPO Logistics Named GM Supplier of the Year
XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a provider of last-mile delivery, freight forwarding and other logistic services, has been honored by General Motors as GM Supplier of the Year for managing GM’s North American aftermarket parts distribution network.
The award places XPO among a select group of GM suppliers recognized for consistently exceeding expectations, creating outstanding value and introducing innovations in 2018.
XPO manages the planning and movement of truck and car parts from GM suppliers to its warehouses and on to dealerships throughout North America. Dedicated XPO teams collaborate with GM on site and via XPO technology to help ensure cost savings, on-time performance, damage mitigation and continuous improvement.
"We’re proud to be ‘One Team’ with GM," said Troy Cooper, president of XPO Logistics. "This is a true collaboration designed to optimize GM’s aftermarket channel and elevate service to their dealers and consumers."
"We hold our suppliers to a high bar," said Steve Kiefer, GM senior vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. "They went above and beyond to deliver the innovations and quality that will help us earn customers for life."
Winners were selected by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives. XPO received its award at GM’s 27th annual Supplier of the Year ceremony earlier this month in Detroit.
