Colonial Cartage Corporation Expands Service Area

ATLANTA, GA., January 28, 2014 – Colonial Cartage Corporation (Colonial) has expanded its service area of LTL shipping lanes for the second time in 18 months. The asset-based dry and refrigerated carrier now provides regularly scheduled temperature-controlled LTL delivery to all points in the Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and Great Plains to the Rocky Mountains. This includes the addition of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, and the Dakotas. The sister company of Atlanta Bonded Warehouse Corporation (ABW) also provides additional truckload and plant support services to the Southeast and select states in the service areas. “From a single inventory, we can now cover 25 states with scheduled LTL deliveries, allowing our customers to minimize their inventory investment, reduce the complexity of replenishments, and improve their inventory turns,” said Carey Dukes, General Manager of Colonial. “Most importantly, we are guaranteeing weekly deliveries to over half the US. This service expansion makes Colonial one of the few asset-based providers in the US to guarantee weekly LTL deliveries. ”
