Opportunities abound in LTL space as industry evolves
Roadrunner has revamped its business model in a major way over the past few years. The company – which describes itself as “transportation’s greatest comeback story” – has taken several ambitious steps in order to become the well-respected national LTL carrier it is today.
Roadrunner’s strategic shifts included exiting both the truckload and rail markets in order to focus its full attention on expanding its LTL network and providing superior service to its clients. In 2020, the company opened new facilities in Chicago, Southern California and Philadelphia.
Thanks to these expansions, Roadrunner has reduced transit times five times over the last 21 months, according to Roadrunner Vice President of Longhaul Operations Shari Leon.
Earlier this year, the company expanded its footprint even further with service to Denver, opening up a wide array of new routes.
