Less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services provider Old Dominion Freight Line (ODFL) said it has seven China-based ports to its Pacific Promise service. Rolled out in March 2009, the Pacific Promise is a less-than-container load (LCL) service between ODFL and various ocean carriers. This is a joint guaranteed LCL service from China to the U.S., which allows importers to move LCL quantities “with a much higher degree of velocity, predictability, and visibility” than has previously been available and is also backed by a money-back guarantee.
