Partnerships with E-commerce Last-Mile Delivery Providers Enhance AirTerra’s Diversification Simplified Shipping Services

AirTerra, an innovative parcel shipping company, announced today it has added CDL Last Mile Solutions and AxleHire, a logistics innovator for last-mile delivery, to its double-digit list of carrier partners.

Filling an industry gap in simplified access to carrier diversity, AirTerra aggregates packages from multiple shippers through its own network in major metropolitan areas. The company’s new partnerships with CDL Last Mile Solutions and AxleHire will provide additional last-mile capabilities to AirTerra’s “point-to-point” network which is designed to ship parcels across long zones faster and with a greater degree of control and efficiency than what is traditionally offered.

Partnering with CDL Last Mile and AxleHire allows us to continue to build our national network and bolster our last-mile capabilities to support our customers in e-commerce and B2B fulfillment”— Brent Beabout

A family-owned company established in 1955, CDL Last Mile is a premier regional carrier from the Northeast to the Mid-Atlantic and one of the leaders in next day ground transportation. The company specializes in time-critical next day delivery for ecommerce and e-retail shippers, looking to reduce costs, reduce transit times, and add flexibility to their delivery networks.

AxleHire provides last-mile logistics solutions for same-day, next day and freight delivery. The company’s delivery models fill last-mile delivery needs across multiple business sectors including retail, grocery, alcohol, meal kits, and general ecommerce.

AirTerra’s objective is to provide a significant amount of diverse final mile capacity without the inherent cost and complexity of managing multiple carriers. Mid- to enterprise-level retailers, manufacturers and distribution companies will be able to deliver packages faster, and with greater reliability, at a lower cost. The end result is a reduced click-to-deliver time for shippers (and customers), along with lower costs and fewer management touch points for those deliveries.
