Agribusiness

Innovative and effective supply chain solutions for agribusiness distribution, handling and storage.

XPO Logistics understands the important role that agribusiness plays in feeding and fueling the world. Our longstanding supply chain relationships with agribusiness leaders have given us an expert perspective on the requirements and complexity of the industry.

While some agribusiness products have similar characteristics to chemicals, others have more in common with food. XPO understands the differences, the unique requirements and the specialized processes required to deliver best-in-class performance – enabling our clients to benefit greatly from our proficiency and insight.
