C R England has expanded its Regional Division with the creation of a new service offering short-haul transportation strategically centered in the greater Chicago IL area.
“The expansion of our Regional Division allows us to break into a growing market and meet the demands of our customers in concentrated networks with shorter length of haul,” said William Champine, vice-president, Regional. “We are also building a work life model which addresses driver needs for time at home and therefore brings more capacity into the market.”
The Regional Division offers short-haul transportation services that deliver increased capacity, surge capabilities, and more reliable deliveries, since drivers are based locally and familiar with the routes. Chicago Regional will focus on the Midwest and service a primary radius of 250 miles around Chicago, as well as a handful of other cities outside the area.
C R England has a fully staffed facility in southern Chicago. The fleet consists of nearly 50 trucks and will expand to more than 100 trucks in the first quarter of 2011. Additionally, the firm will use day cabs and lightweight equipment that will allow payloads that approach 50,000 pounds.
The company has a Western Region that provides coverage in the concentrated hubs of Southern California and Utah, and will continue expansion into a total of five regional markets throughout the United States.
