Estes Express Lines announced that it has reduced standard transit times in its less-than-truckload network by a full day from 26 terminals in the Northeast, Midwest and Southwest regions to more than 28,000 ZIP codes in North America to date.

Estes says that as part of its continual process improvement, it has re-engineered its freight routing network and improved operational efficiencies, resulting in reduced transit times. Customers can utilize Estes’ online Transit Time Calculator under “Shipping Tools” at or call their local terminal to determine transit times for specific shipments.

“Estes is constantly seeking ways to improve our operations to deliver exemplary customer service,” says Billy Hupp, executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Richmond, Va.-based company. “Getting the freight to its destination one day sooner at the same cost is just one of the many ways we support our customers and enhance the value of the Estes service package.”

Estes says it provides service to more than 750 million one- and two-day destinations in its normal network from more than 200 terminals.
