LaserShip, the premier last mile parcel carrier on the east coast, today announced they have expanded their service area for their B2C ground delivery solutions by 44%. As part of their continued strategy of aggressive network expansion, LaserShip has enhanced what is already the largest one day footprint on the east coast. Included in the service expansion is the addition of four new states to the delivery network: New Hampshire, Rhode Island, West Virginia and Delaware. This service area expansion will allow LaserShip to reach an additional 8.5 million customers while offering shippers reduced transit times and more flexibility within their supply chain.
“This network expansion is an exciting part of our strategic growth plan for 2014 and demonstrates increased demand for regional solutions from our shipper partners,” explained Josh Dinneen, SVP of Commercial Strategy. “By further penetrating the population, we are widening the net for e-commerce shippers to reach more consumers, in less time, at competitive ground rates – everybody wins.”
This expansion comes on the heels of recent infrastructure growth where LaserShip expanded their operations by launching ground service in North Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida, as well as opening new sortation centers in Orlando and Charlotte. The new facilities allow LaserShip to better manage volume and offer greater 1-Day and 2-Day footprints along the east coast, and were key elements to achieving an extremely successful holiday peak season.
