Transit times cut in half & reliability further enhanced, FedEx

FedEx Freight has improved its service in key U.S. markets, and FedEx National Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) now provides long-haul shippers with improved on-time service reliability after re-engineering its network, FedEx Freight, an operating company of FedEx Corp. announced.

FedEx Freight is a leading provider of regional next-day, second-day and extended LTL freight services, and has cut transit times in half — from two days to next day — from the Las Vegas area to Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento, Bakersfield and other large cities in Central California, and from Vancouver, British Columbia into the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

FedEx Freight has accelerated delivery from three days to two days in many other cities. Overall, FedEx Freight has helped its customers who depend on fast-cycle logistics by improving service standards in more than 1,000 U.S. lanes in the past year.

Dillard's, a national retailer of fashion and home furnishings, uses both FedEx Freight and FedEx National LTL to meet its supply-chain needs.

“Our reputation hinges on the availability of inventory in our 330 stores. Therefore, we need carriers that can keep pace with our business,” said Fred Anderson, director of transportation for Dillard's. “FedEx Freight has been an excellent carrier for us in the regional sector, and we are pleased that FedEx National LTL is now a strategic alliance solutions provider for our long-haul shipments.”

FedEx National LTL, a leading provider of long-haul LTL services, has adopted a strictly scheduled line-haul operation to enhance reliability. Like FedEx Freight, FedEx National LTL employs advanced information systems that support internal planning and provide shipment visibility to customers.
