While revenue numbers have flattened a bit, the Regional LTL category continues to represent some of the most forward-thinking carriers in trucking. Competition is stiff, so every regional carrier is looking to get a step ahead by improving tracking technology and getting closer to shipper customers through more consultative customer service.
According to readers, the 12 carriers listed below are executing service improvements and continuing to meet increasing freight demands. Leading the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic is New Penn (47.17).
