Our guests on the show today are Malcolm Wilson and Mark Manduca, the respective CEO and CIO of GXO Logistics. GXO is a 7-billion dollar market cap company that provides logistics services to companies around the world. The company was recently spun off from XPO Logistics and now has the freedom to invest aggressively to helps its customers with supply chain and warehouse automation. COVID, supply chain disruptions and rising labor rates around the world have made many companies start to think deeply about their supply chains and to consider outsourcing and automation. As such, given how well GXO would appear to be positioned for the future, I was really looking forward to talking to Malcolm and Mark about:
- The rationale for the spin and what having more autonomy will allow GXO to do;
- The structural tailwinds that are behind the company as it relates to e-commerce, outsourcing and warehouse automation;
- Why GXO is definitely not a commoditized warehouse company;
- Why the company is a buying Clipper; and
- The importance of return on capital when it comes to capital allocation
