Beginning March 1, six regional carriers will enter into a new transportation network that will offer continentwide less-than-truckload, truckload and supply chain freight services.

The six carriers in the new network are Lakeville Motor Express (Midwest), Averitt Express (South and Southeastern), Pitt Ohio Express (Mid-Atlantic, including Indiana, Michigan and Ohio), Land Air Express of New England (New England), DATS Trucking (West) and Canadian Freightways/Epic Express (Canada).

“This new alliance will leverage the superior synergies of six financially strong regional transportation companies into a seamless network serving the entire North American shipping community,” says Pete Martin, president of Roseville, Minn.-based Lakeville Motor Express. “This is a fantastic opportunity for customers throughout the network to use companies they already know and trust to expand their transportation reach.”
