XPO’s Charlotte branch to bring 200 jobs

   XPO Logistics, a third-party logistics provider, has announced the opening of a new North American Operations Center in Charlotte, N.C. The company said it will create at least 200 jobs over the next three years.
   XPO Logistics is a non-asset based 3PL servicing freight transportation services on ground, sea, and air for expedited services, freight forwarding, and freight brokerage to customers in North America.
   XPO, based in Michigan, said it will aggressively pursue expansion in U.S. and North America and that this new operations center is a large initial investment. This center will house accounting and finance, human resources, IT, brokerage, carrier procurement, and operations
   Sean Fernandez, chief operating officer for XPO Logistics, said, “XPO Logistics is growing quickly, and the new center will give us the infrastructure we need to support a much larger company. We expect to start hiring across all functions immediately.”
   North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue, present at the opening, said that the project was made possible in part by the state’s Job Development Investment Grant. Such grants are awarded only to new and expanding businesses that need the grant to meet investment requirements for breaking ground.
   If XPO meets all the targets under the agreement and sustains them for 10 years, the grant will give XPO up to $3.22 million in benefits.
