OnTrac Delivering Hope at Relay For Life of Downtown Phoenix

Posted on Oct 22, 2015 6:00:00 AM

OnTrac participated at the first annual Relay For Life of Downtown Phoenix event on Saturday, October 17, 2015. This is the first year that OnTrac participated as a Gold sponsor donating $1,500 to the American Cancer Society. The event took place at the Civic Space Center and included 150 participants walking to end cancer.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world’s largest fundraising event and most impactful by bringing communities around the world together for a common cause. The event symbolizes a celebration of life for those who have battled cancer, remembering loved ones lost, and taking action to finish the fight. Each Relay for Life event includes an opening ceremony, a lap for survivors, a lap for caregivers, a luminaria ceremony and a closing ceremony. OnTrac Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing Laura Peterson said, “On behalf of OnTrac, we are very thankful for Relay For Life of Downtown Phoenix for bringing the community together and putting on a special event. It’s great that OnTrac was able to participate this year and help to fight for a cure.”

The event was very successful with additional support from individuals who were unable to attend and a total of over $10,000 in fundraising to find a cure. Relay For Life Community Manager Cristine Frietze said, “It’s a wonderful thing to see support from corporate sponsors, such as OnTrac, as well as community volunteers to help get this event off the ground. Our hard work paid off.” Relay For Life of Downtown Phoenix is still accepting donations. Please follow this link for more information and to make a contribution: relayforlife.org/downtownphoenixaz

“We’ve begun construction and will spend in excess of five million dollars on the relocation of our Corporate Headquarters,” said Rob Humphrey, President of OnTrac. “And, we expect to bring more than 850 jobs to the City of Chandler over the term of the lease.”

“Chandler's central location and quick access to the interstate and freeways make it an excellent choice for businesses that have a diverse workforce," said Jay Tibshraeny, Mayor of Chandler. "We are seeing the benefits of that as businesses such as OnTrac and other notable companies choose to locate in the Price Corridor."

OnTrac Material Handling Improves Efficiency in Phoenix

Posted on Apr 26, 2013 3:05:00 PM

As a part of OnTrac’s continuous effort to improve the quality and efficiency of our customer’s shipping experience, the company has launched an initiative that will include installing material handling systems in all of our facilities.

After expanding operations into a building more than four times the size of its previous operation in Phoenix, OnTrac made the decision to install a material handling system. As a compliment to its effort to increase the throughput capacity of the facility and handle increased volume levels, this decision also enables OnTrac to improve the customer experience and reduce the number of handles per package.

The new system has increased the company’s throughput capacity by over 300% enhancing the speed of the OnTrac Ground Network and created 52 new job opportunities for Phoenix residents.

“We are truly excited about the increased capabilities that each of these new systems brings us. We are confident that these increased capabilities will give us the ability to both increase efficiencies and improve service,” said Director of Operations Development Jim Brownlow.

Faster deliveries and more aggressive rates are a welcome concept for any business these days. These upgrades come as a direct response to the increasing number of businesses choosing OnTrac for all their overnight shipping, and guaranteed delivery needs.  OnTrac is proud to offer the highest quality of service at the most competitive rates. 

“Based on what we have seen, we are confident that our process rates and efficiencies will meet and exceed our expectations,” Brownlow said. “This is not only exciting news for Phoenix but is exciting for all of the facilities that are having systems installed.”
