New LTL service to Toronto and Montreal from Detroit

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Roadrunner has launched Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) service into Toronto and Montreal via Detroit.

Roadrunner’s new international service gives shippers ease of access to Canada’s largest metro markets and, coupled with other network expansion, marks its most extensive new market openings in five years. This network growth aligns with Roadrunner’s strategy of providing premium LTL long-haul carrier service.

“This is yet another piece of our strategic plan to grow our Smart Network,” said Phil Thalheim, director of linehaul analytics at Roadrunner.

“We constantly analyze our data to find out where it makes the most sense to add coverage. Both our algorithms and customers indicated that Canada was the next most sensible place for us to expand. We look forward to serving our neighbours to the north.”

Roadrunner also added an additional 135 lanes to its network, building upon recent new market openings in Kansas City, Denver, Richmond, and Las Vegas.

Roadrunner’s new lanes include:

  • Dallas and Houston, Texas to Denver
  • Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee to Denver
  • The Northeastern U.S. to and from Nashville, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Cincinnati
  • Major cities in Florida to Nashville and Memphis
  • Service to Alaska and Hawaii with newly enhanced quote automation and improved transit times

Roadrunner offers direct long-haul metro-to-metro shipping presence and terminals across 40+ metro markets in the US.
