JOHNS CREEK, Ga., Feb. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saia Inc. (NASDAQ: SAIA) announced today that Saia LTL Freight now provides next-day service in 435 lanes across its Northeast and Mid-Atlantic markets. Saia added an additional 78 lanes to its next-day service effective today. The service enhancement includes points in, but not limited to, Albany, New York; Newark, New Jersey; Springfield and Boston, Massachusetts; New Haven, Connecticut; Youngstown, Ohio; Allentown, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Providence, Rhode Island; and Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia; as well as Wilmington, Delaware.
Because of the reduced transit times, customers will now receive a one day delivery improvement on freight moving between these points, allowing for more direct schedules and enhanced service.
“Since we began our expansion in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic markets, our primary goal has been to provide our customers with more direct service points, supported by our industry-leading transportation and logistics services,” stated Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Officer Ray Ramu. “This one day transit enhancement demonstrates our commitment to our ‘Customer First’ core value and builds on the success we’ve seen in the marketplace.”
“Since 2017, we’ve opened 42 terminals. This investment in our network has allowed us to get closer to the customer and offer the best service in the industry,” said Executive Vice President of Operations Patrick Sugar. “Proximity to the customer creates an ability to say ‘yes’ and increased density lets us continue to improve transit times while maintaining the consistency we demand from our teams. Recent terminal openings in Princeton and Morgantown, West Virginia, and these changes to transit, are excellent examples of what you will continue to see by utilizing Saia as your carrier.”
The transit time reductions were made possible because of continued network optimization and is supported by our dedicated employee’s commitment in putting the “Customer First.”
