Wilson Trucking Introduces New Linehaul Load Plan and Driver Schedule

Beginning January 6, 2003, Wilson Trucking Corporation introduced a new linehaul load plan and driver schedule.

The load plan allows Wilson to move shipments with more predictability, which will improve service. We also evaluated all 1600 of our terminal-to-terminal lanes, and were able to improve our transit time by one day in 206 lanes.

Besides needing fewer days to move through the system, many more shipments will now arrive at their destination terminals earlier in the morning, allowing Wilson to deliver more freight earlier in the day.

Highlights of the load plan include greatly improved service in these lanes:

  • The Atlanta area to and from Richmond, Roanoke, Nashville, Memphis, and northern Virginia
  • Georgia, South Carolina, and western North Carolina to and from Tupelo, MS
  • Savannah, GA to and from all points
  • Alabama to and from Tennessee

The load plan and schedule are the biggest single change ever in Wilsonís operations, and are part of Wilsonís continuing commitment to become the premier LTL carrier in the southeast.
