OnTrac is a regional parcel carrier that serves the eight largest states in the Western U.S. OnTrac was founded as a small parcel delivery company in California in 1991 and has expanded[3] to serve seven additional states: Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado and Idaho. A majority of their initial customers were document shippers that needed overnight delivery in California that could not be cost-effectively[4] delivered with the national carriers. Over the years, OnTrac has expanded their service offerings to provide time in transit and cost reduction benefits to large volume parcel distributors and Internet retailers. Their current service area[5] serves over 60 million consumers, or almost 20% of the United States population.[6] OnTrac is a privately held company.

Divisions[edit]

OnTrac owns and operates three divisions of delivery and courier services.

Overnight Division[edit]

The Overnight Division of OnTrac operates in the eight largest states in the Western U.S.: California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado and Idaho. The Overnight division of OnTrac provides priority, express, and ground parcel deliveries.[7]

Services[edit]

  • OnTrac Ground Service launched on August 1, 2011,[8] and offers guaranteed next-day and two-day delivery to its customers.
  • Sunrise Service is offered by OnTrac, which guarantees 10:30 am next business day delivery.[9]


In February 2008,[10] California Overnight changed its name to OnTrac to accommodate the expanding delivery footprint of the company. Since its beginning, the company has realized significant growth, largely due to the growth of the ecommerce industry. The demand for a lower-cost delivery service with a high level of professionalism has increased the growth of several other regional parcel delivery companies that include: Spee-Dee Delivery Service, Eastern Connection, Lone Star Overnight and LaserShip.

Addition of Colorado and Idaho[edit]

On September 1, 2011, OnTrac added the major metropolitan areas of Colorado to its Overnight Division’s service area. This grew the Overnight Division to seven states, and adds 3,641,453 people to its service area.[11][12] In March 2013 the major metropolitan areas of Idaho were added, as well.

Multi-Carrier Shipping Software Providers[edit]

OnTrac partners with many multi-carrier software providers including: ConnectShip,Pitney Bowes, Kewill,[13] CMS GlobalSoft,[14] Digital Shipper,[15] Malvern Systems.[16] ADSI, Agile Network, Descartes, Enroute Systems Corporation, Logicor, MEI Distribution, Pro Ship, Process Weaver, V-Technologies, and Varsity Logistics.[17]

SmartWay Transport Partnership[edit]

OnTrac joined the United States EPA SmartWay Transport Partnership on June 5, 2012.[18]
