Richmond, Va.-based Estes Express Lines has cut delivery times in its less-than-truckload network by a full day from 26 terminals in the Northeast, Midwest and Southwest regions to more than 28,000 zip codes in North America.

Because Estes restructured its freight routing network and improved operational efficiencies, customers will now have reduced transit times. Estes offers an online Transit Time Calculator to help customers determine transit times for specific shipments.

"Getting the freight to its destination one day sooner at the same cost is just one of the many ways we support our customers and enhance the value of the Estes service package," said Billy Hupp, Estes executive vice president and chief operating officer.

Estes provides service to more than 750 million one- and two-day destinations in its normal network from more than 200 terminals.
