Pittsburgh-based PITT OHIO earlier this week announced it has improved transit times to and from New York state by adding 32 next day lanes from the Mid-Atlantic. The LTL carrier is now able to transport freight within one days’ time to and from their terminals in Albany, Buffalo, Utica, and Watertown to terminals in their Mid-Atlantic core territory.
According to a statement from the company, shippers gain improved, one-day transit times from nine of PITT OHIO’s terminals to and from Albany, Buffalo and Utica. Five PITT OHIO terminals in the Mid-Atlantic are now next day to and from Watertown.
“PITT OHIO is committed to providing our customers with best in class, next day service,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Geoff Muessig. “Expansions such as this one to New York is a result of listening to our customers’ needs and responding with service and solutions they require. When we expanded into the entire state of New York back in August with direct service, our first objective was to hire drivers and staff to help us improve service standards. We are the LTL carrier known for our quality service, reliability, and next day lanes.
“In addition to this improved service standard, shippers to and from New York can expect reliable LTL service and a wide range of solutions for the logistics challenges they are facing."
PITT OHIO announced in August 2022 the expansion into New York, offering direct service with four new terminals in Albany, Buffalo, Utica, and Watertown.
