President’s Letter


May 7, 2018

Dear Dayton Freight Customer,

Will spring ever show up? Dayton OH has certainly seen its share of snow and rain, and I’m not convinced we’re in the clear. Flowers are blooming, the lawn is growing and I am looking forward to warmer weather. How about you?

2018 has started off with a bang. We opened a new Service Center in Lexington KY and the business community has welcomed us with open arms. That makes a total of five Centers in Kentucky, and another 49 throughout our network. We just completed a relocation of our Kansas City facility to Grandview MO to be closer to our customers. Built in response to demand, this new 110-door facility is set on 34 acres and allows us to offer even better service and gain more efficiencies.

It’s that time of year for awards in the transportation industry, and I am humbled by our blessings. NASSTRAC, Logistics Plus, Penske Logistics, American Group and GlobalTranz have all recognized Dayton Freight for their on-time service, low claims ratio, flexibility and operations. For the first time we received the LTL Carrier of the Year Award from Lowe’s, and their Platinum Award for the sixth straight year. We’re honored, and I am very proud of our employees who strive to be The Dayton Difference each and every day for you, our customer.

Thank you for your business and your loyalty. Have a great spring!
