Manitoulin, NEMF make interlining pact

TORONTO — Manitoulin Transport and New England Motor Freight are the latest cross-border LTL carriers to form an interlining partnership.

According to the Journal of Commerce Online, the deal means the northeastern U.S. regional carrier will have capacity deep into Canada.

The deal is the latest in a series of recent interlining agreements among Canadian and U.S. carriers looking to cut costs, dead miles and build density in select LTL lanes during these tough economic times.

NEMF’s partnership with Manitoulin will allow for streamlined cross-border transport, customs services and IT offerings.

The carriers expect to improve speed and consistency through the joint customer supply chain.
