The new Menlo Park facility was added to support growth and boost the quickness and efficiency of the network, especially in the greater peninsula area. Neighborhoods serviced by the new facility include: Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Mateo, San Bruno, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, and the San Francisco Airport.

Opening this facility improves efficiency throughout the Bay Area, allowing shipments to be distributed closer to their end destination. The building itself features 12 dock doors and 50,000 square feet of space, which allows for a more rapid parcel throughput rate. The new Menlo Park facility puts drivers closer to delivery locations throughout the area, accelerating transit times. Addition of this facility to the OnTrac network will also help to reduce vehicle emissions.

"This facility helps to reduce the time and distance our drivers have to travel to make deliveries, which in turn gets packages to the customer in a more expedient and efficient manner," said Mark Cronkrite, vice president of operations for OnTrac. "The Menlo Park facility will help us significantly reduce our carbon footprint in the Bay Area," he added.

With the recent addition of Colorado to its service area, OnTrac is expanding rapidly throughout the Western United States. Adding this new Menlo Park facility helps manage growth by spreading the high volume of packages that come through the Bay Area more evenly, increasing efficiency and decreasing emissions by shortening driver routes.
