Looking for competitive pricing and reliable shipment coverage shouldn’t create risks for you. Finding a carrier that can provide good service and consistent capacity at a reasonable price isn't impossible. 

Here at ATS, we understand your position: Your customers require consistency, but consistency and good service often come with higher rates.

That’s why after thousands of deliveries along these 18 lanes each year, we’ve dedicated a significant portion of our van fleet to ensure thorough capacity, reliable service and competitive rates along them and within a 100-mile radius of these cities. With drivers dedicated to these lanes, we're able to gain operational efficiencies and pass these savings on to you. 

The ATS Van Network Lanes have hundreds of assets and partners surrounding these locations, meaning a truck — and speedy recovery option (if needed) — is never far away. 

To keep costs down, create efficiencies and promote growth, many companies have regionalized their distribution centers, facilities and partnerships within the U.S. 

To meet these companies' needs, ATS has a regionalized fleet.

Our robust network of assets and drivers are primarily located in the Midwest (within a 500-mile radius of Chicago) and the Southeast (within a 500-mile radius of Atlanta).

In these areas,  your top priority is ensuring your cargo arrives on time and damage-free. 

You need to work with a transportation provider that shares your commitment to quality service and has the infrastructure, stability and experience to align with your goals in these regions.

Companies that trust ATS’ regional fleet receive around-the-clock freight visibility and transportation services hand-picked to meet their needs.

Whether it's across the country or down the street, utilizing a provider you're familiar with — that you've tested before — is a significant advantage.

You shouldn't need to onboard a new dry van carrier every time your shipping needs shift. That only makes it harder to gain efficiencies across your supply chain.

While our assets, drivers and facilities are most heavily concentrated east of the Mississippi River, ATS offers customized solutions throughout the U.S.
