Maryville-based Vanquish Worldwide, a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) providing global support services to the U.S. Government and the commercial market sector, announced today its award of multiple FedEx Ground Line Haul routes providing pickup and delivery services and package transport on “long haul” routes across the US between FedEx Ground hubs and terminals. Vanquish will provide skilled drivers, as well as single and tandem cab trucking assets to support single and team daily line haul routes.
Vanquish will provide many behind the scene services as part of the contract to include; facility operation and management, 24/7 emergency response equipment management, asset tracking system management, and asset maintenance. In addition, Vanquish will utilize its proven hiring, vetting and training procedures to supply highly qualified and experienced drivers, mechanics, and support personnel. To fully support Vanquish’s current FedEx Ground Package & Delivery contracts as well as the new line haul routes originating from FedEx Ground terminals in Nashville and Memphis, Vanquish plans to open a fully staffed satellite office in Nashville, Tennessee in winter 2013.
“Our team recognizes and welcomes the opportunity to support FedEx Ground in a larger capacity by performing terminal to terminal, line haul services in addition to our current work on FedEx Ground contracts,” said Vanquish Transportation Manager Jon Helpingstine. “As a former Logistics Project Manager and Transportation Coordinator, I understand the importance of providing reliable, DOT compliant transport and delivery services. Vanquish is excited to play a larger part in the FedEx Ground mission by providing superior customer service and cross country transportation support.” Helpingstine and the Vanquish team have successfully managed and overseen complex, multifaceted programs specializing in intelligence, security services, transportation and logistics, staffing, training, life support, and operational requirements across the US, in the Middle East and Africa.
FedEx Ground has established a solid reputation as the leader for on-time delivery performance, technological innovation and fleet safety in the ground small-package marketplace. FedEx Ground holds the distinction of being the fastest-growing transportation company in US history with the mission to be the best small-package ground delivery company serving business and residential customers in North America. Vital to that ambition is the network of Line Haul independent contractors, independent businessmen and women who own their vehicles and provide drivers and daily transportation services.
