This process was cumbersome and inefficient.” said Camping.

UPS Freight, the less-than-truckload (LTL) subsidiary of UPS, recently announced it has rolled out a new service center facility in Franklin Park, Illinois. This is the company’s fifth Chicago-area service center along with other ones in Aurora, Chicago, Palantine, and South Holland.

Putting the renewed strength in the truckload market into a very positive perspective is a report issued by Avondale Partners analyst Donald Broughton, which was released yesterday. Entitled, “Q2’15 Trucking Capacity; Goldilocks Era Continues,” Broughton explained that in the second quarter only 70 truckload fleets failed, or exited the business.
