Express Inc., best known as a truck freight carrier, announced
Wednesday it is starting an air freight service called Roadway
Air. Company officials said they plan to focus on heavy freight,
at least 150 pounds.
The new venture
features door-to-door service, 24 hours a day throughout the United
States and Puerto Rico. Roadway Air expects the arrangement to
give its customers access to more than 40,000 trucks, more than
12,000 daily flight departures and about 3,000 planes.
