Regional Trucking Service Area

Does your business provide service to companies in specific geographic regions, such as the Midwest or the South? It’s important to partner with a transportation company that is familiar with the unique trucking challenges that each area provides and knows how to overcome obstacles that could impact shipping times.

Whether you’re looking for a southern United States, Mid-Atlantic, or Midwest trucking company, Keller Trucking can provide reliable, cost-effective regional trucking services that meet your company’s delivery requirements. Our regional service area encompasses routes of 500-600 miles per day and approximately 60% of our fleet performs these regional hauls.

Examples of the areas we consistently serve include:

  • Dallas, TX
  • Russellville, AL
  • Columbia, TN
  • Effingham, IL
  • Maxton, NC
  • Clarion, PA
  • York, PA
  • Tobyhanna, PA

Some of the services we provide with our regional transportation offerings include dry van truckload and dedicated contract carriage. Our knowledge of the regions and our exemplary safety record helps us stand apart from the other Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and southern United States trucking companies.

Short-Haul Trucking Service Area

As one of the top short-haul trucking companies in the U.S., Keller Trucking can provide an economical, efficient result for shorter deliveries.

Our short-haul routes are destinations that are within a 250-mile radius of our Defiance, Ohio terminal with approximately 25% of our fleet specializing in this scenario.

Short trips of 250 miles or less can be costly if resources are not effectively managed. We use fleet management software and advanced technology to juggle all the moving parts and alleviate bottlenecks in regional transportation before they occur.

From a technological perspective, we utilize advanced Transportation Management System (TMS) software that seamlessly integrates all essential functions and services. This user-friendly platform provides complete control of vital information for enhanced planning, monitoring, and adaptation to changing road and freight conditions.

We also have access to a custom internal platform containing valuable continuous improvement tools, such as custom scorecards, MPG tracking, and real-time truck availability.

The cities we serve with short-haul trucking include:

  • Louisville, KY
  • Chicago, IL
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Columbus, OH
  • Detroit, MI
  • Grand Rapids, MI
  • Defiance, OH area (our headquarters)
  • Indianapolis, IN

Long-haul Or Over-The-Road Trucking Service Area

Although Keller Trucking focuses on delivering short-haul and regional trucking services, these aren’t the limits of our operational scope. We can also provide nationwide trucking and freight services to customers across the United States. If your routing needs fall beyond Keller Trucking’s primary service area or Keller Trucking does not have the capacity, Keller Freight Solutions is the perfect alternative.

The Keller Freight Solutions partner carrier network can accommodate short, regional, and long-haul transportation needs with diverse trailer offerings including Conestoga Flatbeds, Double Drops, Dry Vans, food-grade Reefer, RGNs, and Single Drops.
