Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. (NYSE: RRTS) today announced the opening of two new less-than-truckload (LTL) outbound terminals serving the Northeast region of the U.S. A new terminal in Philadelphia will provide outbound service from southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey, and a new terminal in Baltimore will provide outbound service from the mid-Atlantic region, including the greater Richmond, Virginia area. Both terminals will open June 4, 2012.
The two new terminals expand Roadrunner’s footprint in the Northeast, building on the presence the company established a year ago with the opening of its first outbound terminal serving the New York metro area and New Jersey.
“With the successful opening of the New York metro outbound terminal, many new and existing customers have been asking us to expand our outbound capabilities into a broader geographic area. We have provided inbound service to the Northeast for many years. Building an equally strong outbound presence will enable us to better serve our customers and accelerate our growth in the region,” said Scott Dobak, President of Roadrunner’s LTL division.
