Less-than-truckload carrier Mountain Valley Express recently announced it is adding a new facility to its 8-terminal network with a 36-door terminal in Phoenix. The Phoenix terminal — which covers 6.6 acres and has 8,771 square feet of dock space and has 2,842 square feet of office space — is just west of downtown Phoenix and is close to Interstates 10 and 17, and is expected to be fully operational by May 4.
“The Phoenix metropolitan area is a growing market and a major connection point for Mountain Valley Express,” says Scott Blevins, president and chief executive officer of the Manteca, Calif.-based company. “This expansion will allow us to continue our commitment to be a best-in-class carrier for our customers in the California and Nevada market while gaining new customers in the Arizona area.”
Mountain Valley Express and its partner network now offer full state coverage in seven states with 25 strategically located terminals. “We are excited about our new location and look forward to providing quality service to customers in this area,” Blevins says. “Customers will appreciate our dedication to excellence through our regional 99.2 percent on-time service level and our focus on being prompt, courteous and dependable.”
Bob Johnson, who has been named terminal manager for the new Phoenix facility, has 35 years of transportation industry experience.
