s With its base at the Burlington International Airport, Allied provided same day airfreight and next day LTL service throughout the state. By the early 1970's, the business expanded by acquiring William R. Babineau Trucking and Medlar's Express. Babineau was an over the road hauler specializing in running full loads of paper products from Northern Vermont to New Jersey. Medlar's was a Burlington based trucking company specializing in local LTL service. With the local pick up and delivery of Medlar's combined with Babineau's over the road abilities and Allied's airfreight partnerships, Fred was able to offer a complete package of services to meet the needs of the rapidly growing businesses in Vermont and the Champlain Valley region of upstate New York. s By 1990, the majority of Allied's business had shifted from air freight to ground freight, so Fred decided to change the name to Land Air Express of New England. Land Air Express had begun to offer dependable ground freight transportation with an airfreight service level. With an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and unparalleled service, Land Air Express continued to prosper.
