(Thomson Reuters ONE) -

NORTHAMPTON, UK - August 31, 2017 - XPO Logistics, a leading global provider of
logistics and transport solutions, has received a contract renewal with B. Braun
Medical, one of the world''s largest manufacturers of healthcare solutions.

XPO will handle the distribution of approximately 5,000 medical products and
devices to hospitals, dialysis centers, clinics and care homes to support the
treatment of thousands of patients across France. Distribution takes place from
the XPO site at Nancy (Great East Region). Nearly 17,000 shipments were
completed in 2016.

"XPO has successfully adapted to our regulatory environment and developed
innovative solutions that are tailored for our supply chain. This was crucial
for us," said Claire Menut Vuillemin, quality manager at B. Braun Medical. "With
this renewal of our partnership, we will continue working together to improve
service to our customers, as we have for nearly two decades."

Goods are tracked using a new technology recently designed by the two companies
to control temperatures during storage and transport. New data loggers have been
installed in delivery vehicles, enabling XPO to remotely locate and check the
temperature of the goods in transit.

Nicolas Robert, XPO Logistics managing director, less-than-truckload, France,
said, "XPO has a well-established reputation for the safe handling of goods
within temperature-controlled and highly regulated environments. We also have
the ability to move very quickly to adapt to our customers'' changing needs. Our
latest investments with B. Braun show how we bring our expertise to bear when
creating solutions that deliver a better service experience for end users."
