XPO Logistics has announced the introduction of XPO Connect, a cloud-based, digital freight marketplace, saying the platform is fully automated, self-learning and dynamic.

It is designed to provide shippers with a single point of entry for visibility across modes in real time, making it possible to identify opportunities for time and cost savings.

Through XPO Connect, the company says shippers gain access to business intelligence they can use to purchase transportation more efficiently; this includes visibility of fluctuations in capacity, spot rates and load postings by geography.

Shippers can access carrier capacity, assign loads and track freight movements through one, secure login. The company has designed XPO Connect to integrate all modes of transportation.
