New Penn Marks Twenty Years Offering Puerto Rico Services

Press Release

LEBANON, Pa., April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — (NASDAQ: YRCW) — New Penn is proud to celebrate the twenty-year anniversary of the most reliable and largest Puerto Rico services offering among non-vessel operating common carriers in the Northeast market.

New Penn customers have the flexibility to have Puerto Rico shipments picked up as late as Thursday for a Friday sailing. Shipments arrive in San Juan the following Tuesday and are delivered on Wednesday.

Puerto Rico shipping methods were developed by New Penn operations staff to ensure a 99.9 percent claim-free performance. Shipments are consolidated and loaded directly into ocean containers at the New Penn facility in South Kearny, NJ.

To further speed delivery, New Penn containers are the last to be loaded on the sailing vessel and the first to be taken off upon arrival in Puerto Rico.

New Penn also offers options for document preparation, shipment tracking, and prepaid or collect invoicing to customers.

“Customers rely on us for timely, damage-free deliveries to Puerto Rico. We continue to improve our operations to meet customer demand for next-day transit throughout the Northeast to the port and for reliable ocean transit to San Juan. We look forward to providing exceptional Puerto Rico services for the next twenty years,” said Steve Gast, New Penn president.

To bring the most flexibility, reliability and speed available to your Puerto Rico shipping, call 1-800-285-5000 or go online.
