Partnership with MIT
XPO Logistics and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) have renewed their partnership.
In 2019, XPO became the first global logistics company to join the ILP, which pairs MIT’s world-class research with leading corporations to advance innovation. The terms of the renewal are tailored to XPO’s role as a technology leader in the supply chain industry.
Commenting on the announcement, Mario Harik, chief information officer of XPO Logistics, stated: “Our first 12 months with the Industrial Liaison Program exceeded our expectations for the give and take of insights into transformative technologies. We’re excited to explore a new wave of advances for our customers through our continued work with the pioneering thinkers of the MIT ILP.”
