OnTrac Opens Their Largest Facility Yet!

Posted on Jul 5, 2017 1:00:00 AM

In June 2017 OnTrac welcomed to the public their biggest facility yet in Fontana, California. The nearly 600,000 square foot facility is over five times the size of the two previous OnTrac facilities in nearby Ontario. Although it is the largest facility, the Fontana location is one of 19 facilities in the state of California. With 115 dock doors and the ability to move 8,000 packages an hour, the Fontana facility will service the entire Inland Empire.

OnTrac plans to fully automate the Fontana facility next year. Giving it the ability to move 35,000 packages an hour. By processing packages faster and minimizing time in the facility, the packages can be loaded and arrive at their destination faster.

Laura Peterson, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing says, “This facility is important to us. Not only is it our newest facility.  It is also our largest at just under 600,000 square feet. We have improved our square footage by five or six times and we've tripled the number of employees. And more exciting is that next year, we plan on fully automating this building, which I believe will make us the first regional carrier to have a fully automated facility.”

With the expansion in facility size and additional packages, OnTrac has also tripled the number of staff. There are over 300 people employed at this facility and OnTrac is still hiring today. As peak season approaches, OnTrac will be hiring additional sorters to manage the influx of holiday shipping. Currently, OnTrac is hiring a total of 17 positions between AM Package Handlers, PM Package Handlers, IR Package Handlers, and a Linehaul Dispatch.

Posted on Apr 2, 2014 12:00:00 PM

OnTrac, the leader in regional overnight package delivery service in the eight Western States, is celebrating its one year anniversary of opening service to Idaho on April 2, 2014.

"The new space in the building allows OnTrac to have adequate office space and warehouse for our business to grow over the next five years," General Manager Bob Burkett said. "The old office space was not sufficient for the current needs or future growth."

From Boise, OnTrac is able to give its customers overnight delivery within Idaho and to the major metropolitan areas of Washington, Oregon, Reno and Utah overnight, with two day shipping to California, Arizona and Colorado.

"Overnight deliveries are crucial for cities like Boise that are geographically isolated," Mayor David Bieter said. "I welcome OnTrac and their vital services to Boise and am thrilled that they share my optimism for Boise’s bright economic future."

The addition of Boise to our service area in 2013 increased our service area to eight states and more than 60 million consumers. With the new facility in Boise, OnTrac is able to continue in our efforts to provide the highest quality service at the lowest rates with the fastest time in transit in our service area.

OnTrac Celebrates Chandler Grand Opening

Posted on Oct 29, 2013 10:54:00 AM

OnTrac celebrated the Grand Opening of its new Corporate Headquarters with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

The parcel delivery company opened its doors to Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny and key members of the City Council and Chandler Chamber of Commerce to share in the celebration.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
"This is our brand new home," OnTrac President Rob Humphrey said. "We are very excited to show off our new corporate home in Chandler. We are very proud of what we've got here, and we're already starting to see some of the benefits we thought we'd see by moving to Chandler as we start to hire and bring in new talent. It's a very exciting time for our company."

Chandler's central location and quick access to the interstate and freeways make it an excellent choice for businesses, like OnTrac, that have a diverse workforce.

OnTrac's new home provides the company with additional space and the opportunity for future growth. The new headquarters will also allow for new employee amenities including a game room, employee lounges, and a modernized break room. The company will occupy 65,000 square feet of space in the building, with an option to expand.

"This is a pretty amazing thing, when you think of the transformation of this facility, and we're obviously very happy and glad to be here today," Tibshraeny said at the opening. "Rob's vision with his company, to bring it into Chandler, is really good. We're happy to be here for the opening and we’re looking forward to those deliveries. Let’s make it happen."

OnTrac relocated its Corporate Headquarters from Phoenix to Chandler in September of 2013. The company brings more than 200 employees into the city's economy and expects to expand that number to 850 over the course of its 11-year lease.
