Estes Express Lines Announces 2020 General Rate Increase

Feb 19, 2020, RICHMOND, VA — Our most important goal at Estes is to provide our customers with reliable freight transportation solutions so they can focus on what matters most. As technology’s role in the transportation industry has grown, so has our commitment to enhancing our own capabilities and equipment. It is this decision to prioritize technology that ensures our customers can count on efficient, reliable service whenever they ship with Estes.

In order to continue providing the quality service our customers have come to expect from us over the last nine decades, Estes will be implementing a General Rate Increase (GRI) on Monday, March 2, 2020. Primarily, this GRI will help offset the rising costs of technology, but it will also help us account for the ever-growing costs of maintaining a stable operational structure, driver recruitment and retention, and our employee base.
