Mainfreight expanding U.S./Canada service

   U.S.-Canadian trade logistics company Mainfreight said Monday it is adding equipment and personnel to its nightly service between the U.S. Northeast and Toronto with continuing service to other major cities in Canada.

   The forwarder is adding a “rounder” service with a dedicated truck that originates in Toronto on a Tuesday evening, arriving in Newark-New York the next morning then returning to Toronto on Thursday morning. Mainfreight also provides overnight service to Toronto from Chicago.

   Mainfreight has an exclusive agreement with Sameday Worldwide, a subsidiary of Day & Ross, one of Canada’s largest trucking firms, to provide Canadian domestic service from Toronto to any region in Canada.
