What's New at Reddaway

Improving our position in Portland

Portland Service Center Moving

In mid-October, our Portland service center will move from its Clackamas location to a larger, more centrally-located facility in north Portland. With more capacity and easier access to primary traffic arteries, we will be better able to serve our customers in the greater Portland area.

Our new address will be:

10510 North Vancouver Way
Portland, OR  97217

While our operations will move, the staff that brings you great service will remain intact and will be at the new service center. You can be confident you'll continue to receive the best value in on-time and damage-free transportation services.

For questions regarding our move, please contact our Area Sales Director Brad Stewar, at 503-557-6219 or Service Center Manager Marty Hope at 503-557-6202 or your local account manager.

National Truck Driving Championships

NTDC 2009 logoThrough a demonstration of professionalism and a commitment to safety, 57 YRC Worldwide drivers won their state competitions and the right to compete at the 2009 National Truck Driving Championships. Four Reddaway drivers joined the YRCW team at this year's August event in Pittsburgh. Out of approximately 400 competitors, two YRCW drivers captured top awards, including third place in the Twin Trailers Class and 5-Axle classes.

August U.S. manufacturing exceeds expectations

For the first time in 19 months, factories in the U.S. expanded production, according to the Institute for Supply Management. The group's factory gauge uses 50 as the dividing line between expansion and contraction. ISM reported August at 52.9, exceeding forecasts and the highest level since June 2007. They attribute the gains to the Federal Reserve efforts to thaw credit markets, the "cash for clunkers" program, and tax credits for first-time homebuyers.

Truck tonnage up for July

The American Trucking Associations' advance seasonally adjusted (SA) For-Hire Truck Tonnage Index increased 2.1 percent in July. In June, SA tonnage fell 2.4 percent. July's gain, which raised the SA index to 101.9 (2000=100), wasn't large enough to completely offset the reduction in the previous month. "While I am optimistic that the worst is behind us, I just don't see anything on the economic horizon that suggests freight tonnage is about to rise significantly or consistently," said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello. "Still, even small gains are better than the February 2008 through April 2009 cumulative tonnage reduction of 15.5 percent."

Case Study: Delivering confidence to cleaning supply customer

Case Study: Delivering confidence to cleaning supply customerWhile this Portland customer may provide commercial-grade cleaning products to hotels, restaurants and industries, they sell themselves on service. That's where Reddaway comes in.

It begins with meeting the customer's delivery expectations. Even when given tough delivery requirements, we try to never let the customer down.

Communication strengthens the partnership. A dedicated customer service representative provides twice-daily delivery reports and proactively notifies the customer if a delivery issue comes up.

Personal accountability solidifies the partnership. We know our drivers are an extension of our customer whenever we make a delivery. That's why a smile and a little extra effort mean so much.

Through the years, our work with this customer evolved from a business relationship to a great partnership. Today, Reddaway delivers confidence with each of the 1,000-plus outbound shipments the customer entrusts to our care each month.

To see the difference service, communication and accountability can make in your supply chain; contact your local account manager today.
