LSO Further Expands Regional Footprint to Key Markets Across Southeastern United States

Regional Parcel Carrier Offers Shipping Services in Major Cities Within Tennessee, Alabama and Arkansas

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - January 12, 2016) - LSO, the south's premier regional parcel carrier, today announced official entry into major markets in the southeastern states of Tennessee, Alabama and Arkansas. The expansion of shipping services includes new cities and zip codes throughout the three states. By expanding shipping services in these key markets, LSO now greatly extends its footprint throughout three key southern states while providing continued momentum to provide the best regional parcel delivery services to customers across the southeastern United States.

Businesses choosing LSO for their shipping needs can expect the same customer-centric focus with value-driven and affordably priced shipping options and on-time delivery that LSO has delivered in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and New Mexico for over twenty-four years. LSO now will equip customers with a unique regional solution unmatched in the United States, providing a service offering that includes a combination of on-demand, scheduled/routed, distribution, warehousing and day-definite guaranteed products.

Regional Carriers offer shippers the following advantages:

  • Greater Flexibility - because they operate in smaller market areas and their networks are less complex, regionals can offer later pick-up for next day delivery to most areas, compared to the national carriers who often have to drive, then fly the packages through complicated hub networks.
  • Customized solutions can be developed - depending on the specific needs of customers a unique set of service offerings are available including: Same-day, Next-day, On-demand, Dedicated, Scheduled, Final Mile, Truckload and a full portfolio of day-definite guaranteed services.
  • Faster time in transit - offer same-day delivery, an expanded next-day delivery footprint and are faster in zones 4-6 (Approximately 300 - 1,400 miles).
  • More responsive customer service - most regionals utilize live customer service versus an automated system, their teams are more operationally involved and have greater front line authority to quickly resolve customer issues.

"Through this expansion into three strategic southern states, LSO has increased critical mass by now delivering to seven total states with large distribution centers. These additions to our coverage area create the largest regional parcel carrier in the southern United States and complete another important phase or our expansion strategy for LSO," said CEO Rick Jones.

"At LSO, we are dedicated to providing superior service for our customers while servicing the shipping needs of everyone, from small and mid-sized shippers to Fortune 500 shippers," said Chuck Moyer, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of LSO. "We are pleased to provide these services to new customers throughout the great states of Tennessee, Alabama, and Arkansas while allowing our existing customers much greater access to the southeastern United States."
