LTL news: Reddaway rolls out new next-day service
January 13, 2012
Reddaway, a subsidiary of less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services provider YRC Worldwide that serves the Pacific Northwest, recently announced it has rolled out a new next-day service.
This service will run to and from Las Vegas and key markets in northern California, with overnight deliveries now available between Las Vegas and Oakland, Sacramento, San Jose, and Stockton, according to Reddaway.
“We continue to expand our next-day capabilities to meet increasing demand for quick transit in key markets. Shipment delivery a day after pickup is a true competitive advantage for our customers,” said T.J. O’Connor, president of Reddaway, in a statement.
When asked what drove the need for Reddaway to launch this new service, a company spokesperson told LM that Reddaway has always served the California marketplace well, being the largest regional carrier in the west.
And the spokesperson added that the company is continually look to improve its service to continue to be the leaders in next day delivery, explaining that these were key cities that Reddaway wanted to enhance its service offering to and from. As a company that is continually looking for ways to improve its service offerings, Reddaway said this effort had been under evaluation for the past few months.
Coupled with next day service to Bakersfield and Fresno that was announced earlier this year, this new service to and from Las Vegas and Oakland, Stockton, Sacramento and San Jose compliments that one well, said the spokesperson.
Prior to this new service announcement, Reddaway said that it has always had the most comprehensive service in the west, and this (new service) moved these key lanes from two days to one day service.
