Move Comes After Major Restructuring
Roadrunner opened eight new lanes across its network as part of a multiyear process to improve service offerings, the company announced June 20.
The Downers Grove, Ill.-based carrier had previously undergone a major restructuring to refocus on core less-than-truckload competencies with a focus on direct metro-to-metro operations. It has since worked to grow and improve its network with those plans starting to ramp up.
“Our network improvements are really going back to focusing on what Roadrunner is good at,” said Tomasz Jamroz, head of operations at Roadrunner. “We reorganized our network through a number of things that helps us create that value that we have this amazing ability to go and serve our customers between big metro markets. They’re far away from each other and we’re going to be one of the fastest, if not the fastest, getting there. We are going to go direct.”
