Saia LTL Freight to Expand into Northeastern US


JOHNS CREEK, GA – Oct. 26, 2016 – Saia, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAIA) announced today that Saia LTL Freight will be expanding its network into the Northeastern United States in 2017. Currently, Saia’s plan includes opening three to five terminals in the second quarter of next year, targeting major markets in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Today, the company is ranked as the ninth largest less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier in the United States providing industry leading service in 34 states.

“These new markets line up perfectly with our existing geography and allow us to offer more direct shipping points for our loyal customers,” explained Chief Customer Officer Ray Ramu. “Not only do we plan to invest in new facilities and equipment, but we intend to invest heavily in certain areas of our existing network so that we will be able to handle the increased freight flow to and from these new markets. We estimate that the Northeast LTL market represents approximately $7 billion in annual market revenue opportunity.”
