RICHMOND, Va. — US-based Estes has launched a new three-day service to Calgary and Edmonton from six terminals in Texas and Oklahoma.
The company says it’s able to offer the new service thanks to improvements in freight processing, reduced freight handling and the use of direct lanes into Alberta, reducing service to Edmonton and Calgary from five days to three.
The company will provide three-day service to Calgary and Edmonton from its terminals in: Houston, Temple, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth and Oklahoma City.
Estes says it has consolidated freight at inland regional gateways to achieve higher efficiency, avoiding congested border terminals and improving its document processing capabilities in advance of arrival at the Canadian border.
“Industries that ship significant freight in these lanes cannot afford delays waiting for parts and supplies,” said Estes’ executive vice-president and COO Billy Hupp. “Our reduced number of delivery days combined with our border expertise give customers peace of mind that deliveries will be there when they need them.”
