XPO Logistics said the sale of its truckload operations includes approximately 3,000 tractors, 7,500 trailers and 29 facilities it acquired in its October 2015 purchase of Con-way Inc., and proceeds will be used to pay down debt.
The less-than-truckload carrier reported a net income of $85.6 million on revenues of $782.6 million for the third quarter of 2016, year-over-year increases of 1.4 percent and 0.4 percent, respectively.
Ocean freight rate benchmarking platform Xeneta said transpacific rates have been gradually rising since April, stripping out the short-term impact of Hanjin Shipping’s insolvency in late August.

A survey conducted by American Shipper revealed that 40 percent of participants believe the most likely outcome of Hanjin’s predicament is that its assets will be liquidated and acquired by multiple carriers.
Japan's Kintetsu World Express’ wholly-owned subsidiary, APL Logistics, said its employees are retracting earlier statements they made last week regarding "K" Line's financial position.
Members of California’s congressional delegation asked the federal government to get involved in the Hanjin insolvency, and Rep. Loretta Sanchez said Hanjin’s stranded ships may have goods needed to keep U.S. assembly lines running.
