Why Customers Choose Dayton Freight
Dayton Freight is headquartered in Dayton, Ohio and is a privately-owned regional LTL freight carrier. With 49 service areas in the Midwest region, their core service area encompasses Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. They are, however, part of a strategic alliance network that extends their service across North America.
Boasting some big numbers, they are 98.6% on time (which beats Amazon's expectations of 98.5%) and 99.8% of shipments arrive claims free.
Dayton Freight is also well respected by customers. This fall, they won the Logistics Management’s 2016 Quest for Quality award in the Midwest/North Central Regional LTL category. This is the seventh time DFL has been honored with this achievement.
They are currently ranked as the 16th largest LTL carrier in the country.
