In a move designed to expand its services in the Midwest, less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services provider New England Motor Freight (NEMF) said this week it has opened up a new terminal in Toledo, Ohio.

NEMF said the new terminal, which is expected to open on August 2, will be comprised of 20 dock doors and a 1,200 square-foot office space.

A company spokesman told LM that the impetus for this new terminal is to provide broader based coverage for the entire state of Ohio for NEMF customers, adding that this terminal expansion has been in the works for six-to-eight months.

When asked what the biggest benefits of this terminal are for shippers, the spokesman said they were complete terminal coverage for the state of Ohio, improved transit times, and additional capacity for our customers, as well as being physically closer to our the NEMF base, which allows the company to react quicker to customers’ shipping needs.

“Our business in the Ohio marketplace, particularly in the Toledo area has seen significant growth over the past two years,” said Thomas Connery, Chief Operating Officer for NEMF, in a statement. “We recognized the need to expand and we acted to better service our customers in an area that is growing and is a critical part of our network.”

A mixed bag may be the most appropriate way to characterize the current state of manufacturing based on the most recent edition of the April edition of the Manufacturing Report on Business issued by the Institute for Supply Management today.

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Railroad Administration and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (FRA) issued its long-awaited Final Rulemaking for “Enhanced Tank Car Standards and Operational Controls for High-Hazard Flammable Trains.”

U.S. carloads were down 1.6 percent at 278,294 carloads, and intermodal volume was up 5.6 percent at 279,0123 containers and trailers.

Even though the immediate prospects of a long-term federal surface transportation authorization remain dim, various media reports suggest that at least short-term help could be on the way.

For anyone not sold on the ongoing impacts of e-commerce on logistics and supply chain operations, comments by some influential industry executives at the recent National Shippers Strategic Transportation Council (NASSTRAC) Conference and Transportation Expo definitely would help change that train of thought.
