LTL provider improves service on 149 lanes
Less-than-truckload provider Roadrunner said Wednesday it has improved transit times on 149 lanes throughout its network.
The changes include quicker turn times in 33 origin and 39 destination points, representing 14 million ZIP code to ZIP code combinations. The company has used investments in tech, automation and machine learning to improve direct routing as well as dock and network operations.
“We review data in real-time and seek out every opportunity to optimize our network,” said Shari Leon, vice president of linehaul operations. “On average, we are providing 1-day faster service in these 149 lanes when shipped on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Our ‘Weekend Plus’ service is expedited service at LTL rates — it’s an advantage that we can offer due to our direct routing over long distance.”
