Holiday peak extends into 2023 to support retailers’ busy return season
GXO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: GXO), the world’s largest pure-play contract logistics provider, today announced plans to hire more than 22,000 team members by the end of 2022 to support its global warehouse operations following record customer growth, new warehouse startups, as well as the peak holiday season. Many of GXO’s seasonal positions globally will extend into January 2023 when the return of post holiday goods reach peak volume.
“Our hiring plans reflect a record year of customer growth,” said Bill Fraine, GXO’s Chief Commercial Officer. “A great peak starts with planning and requires real-time agility to adapt to market demand. As we’re gearing up for the peak season, we’re also planning for one of the busiest return seasons as shoppers look to exchange goods after the holidays. The days of peak volume ending in December are behind us as consumers continue to extend the season well into the new year.”
