MISSISSAUGA, Ont. –TST Overland Express has announced it is expanding its transportation network with a new Winnipeg, Man.-Minneapolis, Minn. gateway.
The company says the new hub will improve transit times on many lanes in the Midwest by up to two days. It’s the third time in the last six months that TST Overland Express has made transportation network improvements, the company says.
TST chose Minneapolis as a new regional distribution hub in the upper US Midwest because it can help the carrier provide better service between western Canada and the US, particularly the Midwest, the company says.
“This current move is just one more step in strengthening our LTL network across North America,” said Rob O’Reilly, president, TST Overland Express. “We made a commitment to making service improvements for our customers -and we are delivering.”
TST says proprietary new technology and a direct line-haul service have enabled the company to improve its services in Western Canada. Direct line-haul service reduces freight handling and transit times while the proprietary technology has allowed the company to cross the border more efficiently and better manage its routing and documentation.
