Roadrunner Expands Metro-to-Metro LTL Service Network


New direct service for Phoenix at Chicago, Detroit at dallas, Indianapolis at Atlanta,
Saint Louis at dallasand Cincinnati at Atlanta

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., June 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Roadrunner, Transportation’s Largest Return Story, a part-load (LTL) service carrier specializing in nationwide long-distance metro-to-metro shipping, announces five additional direct routes to its service network and improved transit times of at least one day in 66 of its major routes. This follows other network improvements made earlier this year.

Roadrunner’s continued investment in technology, training and service center enhancements results in faster delivery times and more direct routes for its customers. As the company reorganized its tracks, it increased its volume capabilities, added a more direct route, and virtually eliminated the use of rail. Among other things, the eastbound lanes of Phoenixheading west from Saint Louis and Detroit and heading south from Cincinnati and Indianapolis all see noticeable improvements in transit times.

“This enhancement comes just in time for summer to benefit our many customers,” said Roadrunner’s president. Frank Hurst. “We are proud to announce these changes. Service is our #1 priority. We have spent the past two years overhauling our network to ensure we only operate in lanes where we can deliver service and quality. As a result, we’ve seen our on-time performance percentage increase significantly across the entire network.This is the second time this year that we’ve accelerated our network and reduced transit times, and we’re not stopping there.

“Increasing transit times in these 66 lanes is just the beginning. Our analytics team has proven that we are running faster than our stated transit times in over 650 lanes, or nearly 20% of our 3,700 lanes,” said Philippe Thalheim, Director of Linehaul Analytics at Roadrunner. “Following previous operational improvements, which included the installation of dimensioners in all our facilities, dock automation, network restructuring and the implementation of the static load plan, our data confirmed that our freight is delivered early in these lanes due to earlier pickups and improved daily capacity.

“The Roadrunner team has improved its training, staff and service,” said Chris Jamroz, Executive Chairman of the Board of Roadrunner. “We have made significant investments in our technology to provide 100% end-to-end network visibility, improve site-level performance and optimize data, enabling us to deliver better service at a better value. In addition to returning to our roots as an LTL carrier and providing quality service at a competitive value, Roadrunner has created a driver-centric culture that focuses on the financial success and personal well-being of our drivers.”
