C.H. Robinson laid off about 300 workers last week in another round of staffing reductions at the freight brokerage.
The freight brokerage eliminated just under 2% of its workforce across its global operations, a spokesperson told Transport Dive in an email. The jobs were primarily in shared services and non-engineering technology roles.
In a previous round of layoffs, the Minnesota-based brokerage cut 650 jobs in November in a move to reduce costs.
The company expects its headcount reduction strategy to reduce expenses by $100 million, executives said during a Q1 earnings call.
C.H. Robinson reported its headcount at the end of Q1 was 16,400, about 1,000 fewer compared to its total at the end of Q4.
Overall headcount is down 1,500 since Q3, and the company expects the decline to continue throughout 2023, CFO Mike Zechmeister told analysts during the earnings call.
