Six motor carriers have joined an alliance known as The Reliance Network, offering truckload, less-than-truckload and supply-chain services across North America. The carriers said they were collaborating to establish a "seamlessly integrated" network for shippers throughout the continent. The Reliance members and their geographical coverage are: Averitt Express (South and Southeastern U.S.), Canadian Freightways/Epic Express (Canada), DATS Trucking (West); Lakeville Motor Express (Midwest), Land Air Express of New England, and Pitt Ohio Express (Mid-Atlantic and Central States). Customers can work directly with their local Reliance Network member, instead of managing shipments with multiple carriers to service their regional, national and worldwide shipping needs, the group said. Together the six carriers have 15,000 employees and more than 25,000 trucks and trailers. The group is offering centralized administrative processes with full-service PRO number tracking, tracing and invoicing capabilities.
