SHIFT Freight, a progressive LTL carrier dedicating to handling shipments with premium service at affordable prices, continues its momentous expansion initiative as the company announces the opening the first East to West outbound markets servicing the Midwest and Southeast to California.
After expanding its California outbound footprint to cover 80 percent of the nation last year, SHIFT Freight now looks to meet the rising demand from the carrier’s third-party logistics (3PL) partners and direct shippers to have freight in the Eastern half of the United States transported back to the West Coast. As of Sept. 15, SHIFT Freight will be delivering California-bound shipments from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida, increasing its outbound footprint by 20 percent. Not to be left unnoticed, SHIFT Freight also announces the delivery expansion to 1239 new direct points in Virginia from the California outbound market.
“This outbound expansion marks an epic moment in our company’s history as we embark on the mission to become a premium national LTL carrier,” said Joe Bartone, President of SHIFT Freight, “We’ve proven that we can provide exceptional, industry-leading service delivering outbound from California to a majority of the U.S. and now, we’re committed to providing the same service to our partners in the Midwest and Southeast back to California.”
With SHIFT Freight’s premium customer service and best-in-class dimensional scanning technology, the LTL carrier is quickly becoming known as a dominant player in the industry. The expansion of outbound services from the Midwest and Southeast to California, combined with the 31 states the carrier already services from California, illustrates the hyper-growth the company has experienced since launching in August, 2013.
