GREENWICH, Connecticut-based XPO Logistics, the second-largest less-than-truckload (LTL) provider in North America, plans to invest about US$90 million this year in 770 new tractors for its LTL network

'We're committed to giving our LTL drivers the latest technologies for comfort and safety. These new tractors also reflect our commitment to the environment by providing improved fuel efficiency and reducing emissions,' said XPO Logistics president Troy Cooper.



The new tractors will have 15-litre engines and 12-speed transmissions, replacing models with 13-litre engines. The larger engine is expected to offer a more optimal blend of performance, fuel economy, emissions characteristics and engine life, given the load profile of the company's LTL network, reports American Shipper.



The units also will feature the latest safety technologies, including lane-departure warning systems, adaptive cruise control and collision-mitigation systems to assist drivers.
