Lasership and OnTrac Expand E-Commerce Delivery Network to Texas with Launch in Early 2023
expansion will help retailers reach an additional 19 million consumers with faster, more reliable delivery at a lower cost
Leading e-commerce parcel carriers LaserShip and OnTrac announced the expansion of its e-commerce delivery network into Texas in the fast-growing urban megaregion of Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio with deliveries set to begin in early 2023. The Dallas-Fort Worth facility will operate as the carrier’s major sort hub for Texas to reach 19 million new consumers with faster, residential e-commerce delivery.
“Our focus has always been our relationships with retailers. We are proud to expand to Texas and provide our retail partners with a proven carrier that can help them meet their customers’ expectations of faster delivery,” said Josh Dinneen, Chief Commercial Officer at LaserShip and OnTrac. “As national carriers prioritize profits over partnerships, we are helping retailers win more customers and build brand loyalty across the Lone Star state. We also look forward to welcoming more employees into the LaserShip/OnTrac family and growing our involvement within the local communities.”
Located at 802 East Centre Park Blvd. and developed by the industrial team of Crow Holdings Development, the 300,000 sq. ft. sort center will facilitate millions of deliveries to more than 7.6 million residents in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and provide easy access to the I-35 and I-20 corridors. LaserShip and OnTrac are creating hundreds of full- and part-time jobs to help meet local delivery demand, while boosting economic growth across the regions.
“Crow Holdings Development is proud to partner with great tenants like LaserShip and OnTrac, as they seek to meet the needs and expectations of their customers and especially as demand for e-commerce continues to grow,” said Crow Holdings Development Managing Director Brad Cooper. “For more than 70 years, our company has taken a strategic and targeted approach to building state-of-the-art logistics spaces in vibrant markets, and this project has been particularly rewarding, as it’s located in our headquarters’ hometown.”
By expanding to Texas, the combined LaserShip and OnTrac delivery network will reach 80% of the U.S. population in 2023. Retailers will also be able to take advantage of LaserShip and OnTrac’s new transcontinental delivery service, which helps retailers reach consumers in the country’s most populated regions with faster, reliable home delivery that builds brand loyalty at a lower cost. Launched as a product of the companies’ 2021 merger and in response to overwhelming customer feedback for a proven alternative to national carriers, the transcontinental service connects LaserShip and OnTrac’s complementary East and West Coast delivery footprints to move packages from coast to coast in as little as three days.
