FedEx Freight Corp. on Monday, Jan. 31, announced enhancements to its service offerings by launching a unified less-than-truckload network and offering customers the choice of two levels of service from a single company. FedEx Freight Priority is a fast-transit option for time-sensitive LTL freight delivery, while FedEx Freight Economy is an economical choice for freight that isn’t time-sensitive.
“By providing two reliable services through one company, FedEx Freight is simplifying the LTL carrier selection process for customers,” says William J. Logue, president and chief executive officer of FedEx Freight. “Further, our unique network design and proprietary technology allow FedEx to deliver the service choices to our customers in all lengths of haul.”
Both FedEx Freight LTL services are offered through one pickup and delivery network. Additional conveniences include:
• One truck for pickup and delivery;
• One FedEx Sales representative;
• One phone call to request either service;
• One Bill of Lading to choose either service;
• One invoice statement to reduce paperwork;
• Simplified FedEx Freight account numbers; and
• Streamlined Web applications that allow quick selection of either service.
“We are pleased to offer a new approach to LTL, based on attributes our customers have told us they value,” Logue says. “Our streamlined network is engineered to deliver excellent service to customers, while allowing FedEx Freight to maximize existing capacity and support future growth.”
