Inbound and outbound trucking supports Cascades’ use of reusable paper
Leonard’s Express provides both inbound and outbound services for Cascades, meaning drivers haul raw material into Cascades’ plants and then carry finished goods out.
“Most of the products Cascades produces are made from reusable paper,” said Laurie Weiss, Sales Executive for Leonard’s Express. “Leonard’s Express brings in the recyclable paper, then Cascades takes that paper, breaks it down and makes product out of it. Then we ship the product out to their various customers.”
“We do all of it by full truckloads,” said Buckli. “We do no LTL or ‘less than truckload’ type business with Leonard’s. We don’t ship via UPS or Federal Express with them, strictly full truckloads.”
“We’re doing a lot of business out of Niagara Falls,” said Weiss, referring to the facial tissue, toilet paper, and paper towels that Leonard’s Express delivers for Cascades. “We haul five to ten loads per day in and out of the Falls.” Leonard’s Express also carries loads from Virginia, Oklahoma, and Oregon, typically destined for customer locations across the United States and Canada and the Cascades manufacturing plant in Wisconsin. “We are committed to about 65 lanes, so that business comes in automatically over the EDI (Electronic Data Interchange),” added Weiss.
