Transportation provider FedEx Freight has opened a new container freight station in its Chicago Summit, Ill. facility to consolidate and sort freight bound for Puerto Rico.

Shipments to Puerto Rico moving from Chicago Summit will travel five days a week. The service will benefit any customers shipping to Puerto Rico from North America, including in Canada and Mexico, according to the company.

“The container freight station in Chicago Summit is a key location in our network to better serve the needs of our customers,” said Grant Crawford, vice president of international, FedEx Freight. “This more centralized location will help improve transits and rates for many Puerto Rico shipments.”

Freight bound for Puerto Rico was previously processed at the FedEx Freight facility in Newark, N.J.
