XPO continues to bet on the use of the latest technologies, in this case, Artificial Intelligence, to provide a better consumer experience in last-mile delivery. The company’s latest innovation has been the development of a chatbot that makes an automated phone call to inform the end recipient about the exact time and delivery point of their order.
