Shortly after launching expedited service to the West Coast, Averitt is shortening less-than-truckload transit times in lanes between Atlanta and the Midwest.
The Cookeville, Tenn.-based trucking operator cut transit times to two days on lanes linking Atlanta with Ohio, Indiana and most of Michigan, including Detroit.
The TRNet Express lanes are offered through the Reliance Network, a group links Averitt and seven other regional LTL carriers in the U.S. and Canada.
In early September, Averitt launched TRNet Express lanes from the Southeast to West Coast cities from Sacramento to San Diego, Calif. The company plans more.
Averitt is considering lanes linking the Southeast and Pacific Northwest, Phil Pierce, executive vice president of sales and marketing, said in an interview.
The company is building a network of express lanes with Reliance Network Partners Pitt Ohio, Lakeville Motor Express and Mountain Valley Express.
