Regional carriers join consortium

Mountain Valley Express and Peninsula Truck Lines recently joined the regional LTL cross-continent consortium Reliance Network. The two carriers will serve the West and replace DATS Trucking’s service in that region, according to a statement from Reliance, based in Nashville, Tenn.

Mountain Valley Express provides trucking and dedicated loads to a broad base of customers across the western United States, and Peninsula Truck Lines serves Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Vancouver, British Columbia.

DATS Trucking will continue its Western regional operations but is no longer part of the Reliance Network, which serves the United States, Mexico and Canada.
