Next day service from Toronto to seven Midwest cities has been announced by Holland Freight, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc.
U.S cities now being serviced by Holland Freight from Toronto with next day service are Chicago; Joliet, Ill.; Wheeling, Ill.; Cincinnati; Indianapolis; and Huntington W. Va.
Holland Freight President Jeff Rogers said the move gives his company the largest next-day footprint of trucking out of Toronto among major carriers.
"Canada is one of our most profitable business lines that we want to grow through (less than truckload) deliveries," said Rogers whose companies specializes in next day service with about 73 percent of its business in that market.
Formerly operated as USF Holland, the company consolidated its terminal services from the Holland terminal last June to its Wyoming distribution plant at 4600 Clyde Park Ave. SW.
