  • Roadrunner exec: “Vancouver is a vibrant area with dynamic business growth.”
  • Ports in Vancouver and Prince Rupert provide access to the world supply chain.
  • Vancouver outbound service allows Roadrunner to serve needs of shippers that require transportation in both directions.

Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. today announced the expansion of its less-than-truckload service to include outbound service from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The new service offering began May 2, 2016 and will open the western half of Canada to Roadrunner LTL Freight’s outbound service.

Vancouver is a vibrant area with dynamic business growth, being fueled by domestic as well as international trade,” said Grant Crawford, Roadrunner Transportation Systems president of LTL. “The access to the world supply chain that this market provides through ports in both Vancouver and Prince Rupert is becoming a regular choice for customers moving freight from Asia into North America. Adding outbound service will allow us to serve the needs of customers that require transportation in both directions.”

This is the fourth service expansion for Roadrunner’s LTL Freight division in 2016 after announcing revised service standards and a guarantee LTL product roll-out in February 2016.

“Our Vancouver inbound and outbound products are highly competitive in the market, where given my past experience in Canada, highlighted the need for a reliable, cost-effective product that provides stability and commitment to the customers in British Columbia,” added Crawford.
