Better Trucks and GLS partnership unlocks nationwide markets to customers of both companies
Better Trucks, a technology-driven logistics firm focused on rapid parcel delivery, has expanded its coverage area to 32 markets across 20 states, delivering to 126 million people and 40% of U.S. households.
Better Trucks expansion includes the launch of its own operations in major metro areas in Texas including Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
Additional expansion is realized through a partnership with GLS, a premier full-network carrier with operations across the Rocky Mountain region and West Coast. The bilateral partnership opens the combined footprint to customers of each company, unlocking markets from New York City to San Diego.
Shippers want a carrier with national reach that can integrate both technology and physical delivery in two days or less, said Steven Bergan, GLS U.S. President. Our partnership with Better Trucks unlocks not just one, but every region our customers have been asking for beyond our coverage in the West. Our clients can now deliver to the midwest, southeast, Texas and up to New York without any change to their process, and our markets are open to Better Trucks customers.
Technology is a key focus of our partnership with GLS to create a seamless handoff between our operations to expand coverage for our respective customers, said Andy Whiting, Better Trucks co-founder and CEO. It is vital to both of us to uphold our high service standards. Customers can still print labels, initiate pickups and track packages as they always have, but now from coast to coast.
Better Trucks operational roadmap includes additional expansion plans during the remainder of 2023 and through 2024.
