Less-than-truckload carrier (LTL) Old Dominion Freight Line (ODFL) recently announced it has expanded its next-day service to the Greater Toronto area.

Company officials said this service will be provided without any type of additional cost for customer shipments traveling from Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana, with expedited services available to customers outside of this area.

Wayne Bersch, vice president of ODFL’s OD Global Division, told LM that ODFL is constantly looking for ways we can improve upon its already strong service for customers.

“We’ve looked to expand our next-day service to the Greater Toronto area as our base of clients in the Midwest has grown and as the demand for this next day service has grown,” he said.  “This new service provides customers with a seamless and reliable service across the U.S.-Canadian border.”

Bersch added that with this new service, ODFL will continue to offer customers the premium service they have come to expect from Old Dominion.

“As with all of our services, we are looking for ways to deliver promises to more and more customers,” he said.
