Ground Solutions

XPO utilizes an extensive network of independent owner-operators who understand the critical urgency of time-definite shipments. On very short notice, we can secure the appropriate equipment based on needs, such as cargo vans, sprinters, large straight trucks or tractor-trailers. Additional services and equipment include lift gate, temperature control, blanket wrap and high security. Capacities range from 1 lb. to 44,000 lbs.

We can also provide you with specialized services for life science and pharmaceutical goods, and for goods that require special handling or extra security. If you’re a Detroit area shipper or receiver, we offer prompt local pickup and delivery in the Detroit Metro Zone at competitive rates, with cross-docking and storage available.

Call our customer service professionals with your cargo dimensions, weight and any special handling needs, and we’ll help you choose the right vehicle.
