C.R. England expands Regional division to Chicago

C.R. England has expanded its Regional division with a new short-haul transportation service offering in the greater Chicagoland area.

“The expansion of our Regional division allows us to break into a growing market and meet the demands of our customers in concentrated networks with shorter length of haul,” said William Champine, vice president, Regional. “We are also building a work-life model which addresses driver needs for time at home and therefore brings more capacity into the market.”

Chicago Regional will focus on the Midwest and service a primary radius of 250 mi. around Chicago, as well as a handful of additional cities outside the area. C.R. England’s fleet in the area is approximately 50 trucks and will be expanded to more than 100 trucks in the first quarter of 2011. The company will utilize day cabs and light-weight equipment allowing for payloads approaching 50,000 lbs.
