XPO Logistics : Increases Productivity & Safety

11/30/2020 | 07:11am

XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a leading global provider of transport and logistics solutions, has deployed 370 state-of-the-art barcode scanners with machine vision in warehouses in the UK, Spain, France and the Netherlands. The fixed-mount, computerized scanners speed the reading of inventory data, while replacing shared, handheld scanners with a more hygienic solution.

XPO selected the Cognex Series 370 technology following pilot programs for major retail customers, such as H&M, with additional trials underway. The scanners are installed in high-volume e-commerce warehouses where workers are managing the holiday surge in order fulfilment.

Richard Cawston, managing director, supply chain - Europe, XPO Logistics, said, 'We're constantly exploring new technologies that can enhance the efficiency and safety of our logistics network. Each time we replace a handheld scanner with a fixed-mount camera, we increase throughput by over 10% on average, and the task transfers from person to person touch-free.'

XPO is the European leader in outsourced e-fulfillment - a fast-growing area of logistics that has been accelerated by the shift to online ordering during COVID-19.
