HOLLAND, Mich., June 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Holland and Speedy Transport Group, Inc. are celebrating 20 years of successful service as one of the largest regional cross-border transportation partnerships in North America.
“Holland is proud to be a transportation partner with Speedy Transport Group,” said Holland President Scott Ware. “With more next-day shipping lanes to and from Canada than other carriers, combined with our team of quality transportation professionals, we have been able to provide better service to both Holland and Speedy’s customers while growing business for both organizations.”
The two companies first collaborated in 1996 transporting half a load of less-than-truckload (LTL) cross-border freight daily. Twenty years later, Holland and Speedy now move thousands of cross-border loads monthly to more overnight locations than any other cross-border carrier in the same coverage area.
Holland boasts more next-day and second-day lanes to and from Canada than its competitors. Holland consolidates Canadian freight in Detroit, Toledo and Buffalo for Speedy, while Speedy represents Holland in Eastern Canada and has Holland dedicated customer service representatives in Ontario and Quebec.
"Our 20-year relationship with Holland has been a true partnership, built on integrity,” said Speedy Transport CEO Jared Martin. “We work well together providing efficient and effective service for our continuously growing customer base.”
