Clear Lane Freight is now an affiliated company of Estes Express, the nation’s largest privately-owned freight transportation carrier. This affiliation strengthens Clear Lanes capabilities as we have more resources to help your business with all your long-haul LTL needs. Estes is backed by nearly 90 years of industry expertise and financial stability. They offer better customer experience through flexibility and improved technology. The Richmond, VA-based fourth-generation company operates one of the newest fleets in the industry and understands that its nationwide team of over 19,000 employees is one of its strongest assets. Clear Lane Freight specializes in less-than-truckload LTL freight shipping. We provide economical long-haul LTL which is often referred to as deferred service. We have recently revised transit times to reflect a realistic and consistent service offering. We feel that being transparent with these consistent service levels, our customers can predict with a much higher degree of certainty when their shipments will deliver. As a result, they can adjust shipping patterns that are suitable to accommodate longer transit times and cost savings. Since the affiliation with Estes Express, we have already experienced a 20% improvement in transit time performance. Deferred transportation can be especially useful for returns or reverse logistics for major retailers and suppliers. Clear Lane Freight is ideally suited for this type of non-time sensitive service as we are currently handling this type of service for several large retailers. We seamlessly fit into these types of reverse logistics and supply chains. We can either perform consolidation of returns to truckloads or handle the shipments within our LTL network. As a result, we make a great partner for companies that are looking to reduce costs of returned products. By partnering with some of the largest 3PL’s in the industry and their productive sales organizations, Clear Lane can reach large numbers of small to medium size shippers. Clear Lane relies exclusively on our 3PL partner’s sales force and therefore does not compete with 3PL’s for customers. As a result, unlike traditional carriers who view customers of 3PL’s as secondary, we are committed to excellence in our relationships with the shippers who contract with 3PL’s. We are excited about this new affiliation with Estes Express. Clear Lane has always been a viable option for price-sensitive customers that seek lower rates in return for slightly longer transit. We will continue to invest in technology, customer service and experienced staff. Clear Lane Freight Systems is well-positioned both financially and operationally for further expansion and service improvements. We take pride in the quality of our services and we look forward to the opportunities arising from this exciting new affiliation with Estes Express.
