R&L Carriers: Unlimited Expansion

By: Bubbajunk.com

Founded in 1965 with only one truck, R&L Carriers has expanded its fleet to more than 10,000 tractors and trailers. R&L is a leading less-than-truckload (LTL) freight carrier known for its expeditious service, achieved by anticipating the needs of their customers and responding to their expectations. Their secret is to get the shipping information before the trucks arrive at the service center gates and use that time to react and plan ahead. Their urgent shipment services guarantee delivery by 10:30 a.m. of the next day. If they fail to deliver it by that time, the delivery is totally free!

Security is also a major concern for R&L Carriers; they have a security force of approximately 100 officers trained to protect the shipments of their customers; it has implemented education training programs in security procedures such as D.A.R.T. as well as safety programs, emergency response procedures and constant driver trainings. Additionally, with the TECH 2000 program, they combine security resources and customer service personnel to swiftly insure possible freight losses.

R&L Carriers currently serves a total of 47 states in the US, in addition to its operations in Canada and Puerto Rico. Its headquarters are located in Wilmington, Ohio, and it delivers more than 20,000 pieces of freight per day. Over the years the company has acquired many other businesses such as Gator Freightways, Inc. in 1989, Greenwood Motor Lines, Inc. in April of 1992, and Herder Truck Lines, Inc. in 1996. R&L Carriers promises to expand even more in direct response to the needs of their customers.
