July 2020 Trucker Tribune
Dear Roadrunner Freight Independent Contractors,
We’re close to wrapping up a very productive month, and we are looking forward to the fruits of our labor in the coming months! Our plans for three new facilities are solidifying quickly.
Our Philadelphia service center is set to open on August 3rd, Chicago will be moving operations to its new facility on August 17th and our new Riverside, CA will open in early August as well. Construction for these new, state-of-the-art facilities is well underway and we look forward to continued partnership with our Independent Contractors in these markets.
Roadrunner Freight is also proud to note that we’ve achieved 11% growth compared to June of last year. These milestones truly embody how far Roadrunner Freight has come, and I couldn’t be more proud of great work you’ve all put in – you’re really shipping it like you own it! Thank you for all your hard work. Please stay safe, and be sure to read on for more company news and initiatives.
Ship It Like You Own It,
New Service Centers
Roadrunner Freight is excited to announce three new service centers in Chicago, Philadelphia and Riverside! More information about these service centers can be found on our press release here.
The Print Project
We’re continuing to take actions to reduce our carbon footprint and be more environmentally responsible. We have evaluated areas where we can reduce printing paperwork, and you may have noticed less paperwork in your Dispatch Packets.
The items you will still be receiving include:
• Manifest Summary
• Stop List & Delivery Instructions
• Hazardous Materials Documentation
• Vehicle Inspection Report
• TransFlo Coversheet
Thank you for your support in this effort. If you have any questions, please reach out to your IC Coordinator.
