Greyhound Lines And Multipack Expand International Package Shipments To California
 
DALLAS (Aug. 14, 2000) - Greyhound Package Express (GPX), a division of Greyhound Lines, Inc., expanded its relationship with MultiPack to offer package delivery service between California and Mexico this month.

Packages will be delivered at prices far below rates charged by most competitors. For example, a parcel shipped from Los Angeles to Mexico City on GPX and MultiPack of up to five pounds will cost $15 and take two to three days. A similar shipment on other carriers takes one to three days and costs as much as $58 for five pounds.

Southbound shipments are available from the San Diego metro area, as well as the San Joaquin Valley area of California, including Fresno, Madia, Merced, Modesto, Goshen Junction and Bakersfield. The service is expected to be available statewide by November. Future expansion of the international service will include several Arizona markets, including Phoenix.

Shipments from Mexico to the U.S. will be available from all points in Mexico to all points on the Greyhound system.

"Our initial service arrangement with MultiPack gave us access to a thriving delivery market," said David Phillips, general manager of Greyhound Package Express (GPX). "This expansion provides our customers in California timely, low-cost delivery of packages to throughout Mexico."
