RoadOne IntermodaLogistics has announced that the company is celebrating its first anniversary. RoadOne was launched one year ago to deliver integrated, single source transportation and logistics solutions to meet today’s economic and market challenges. Within this year, RoadOne has expanded its national intermodal network with a new agent-based model under the U.S. IntermodaLogistics name and strengthened its partnership with E*Fill America to deliver extensive warehousing and fulfillment services throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The RoadOne IntermodaLogistics strategic partnership with E*Fill America, an affiliate of RoadOne, delivers synchronized and seamless, one stop warehousing and transportation programs that offer the ease and efficiency of a single point of contact. Additionally, RoadOne delivers a complete real-time visibility solution for inventory and freight in-transit, that allows businesses to respond quickly to unplanned events, manage costs, and speed delivery.

Within this last year, RoadOne founders and industry veterans Ken Kellaway and David McLaughlin have advocated for improvements to intermodal driver capacity issues that have the potential to cause supply chain disruptions. They are focusing on advancing: price adjustments to address declining driver capacity, greater chassis efficiencies for drivers to increase productivity and supply chain performance, and the impact of government regulations such as HOS (Hours of Service) that are negatively impacting the size of the drayage driver pool.

“On our one year anniversary, we are pleased to see that companies are embracing single source logistics management solutions that add efficiencies, improve inventory management and operational performance. By partnering with E*Fill America, we deliver integrated logistics solutions that offer significant advantages and add value to today’s supply chains,” said Ken Kellaway, CEO, RoadOne IntermodaLogistics. “Part of adding value is helping to create sustainable intermodal solutions that address today’s supply chain needs and future growth. We will continue to work to expand our logistics and intermodal capabilities, bring more environmentally friendly tractors into the marketplace, and help our customers and drivers navigate the changing chassis landscape.”
