Old Dominion Adds Nine New Service Center Facilities
February 9, 2021
Dominion Freight Line expanded its network by adding nine service centers in new
and existing markets. The steady growth brings the Company’s service center
count to 245 and solidifies Old Dominion’s presence across the continental
United States. The less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier’s new or improved
facilities include Brooklyn, N.Y., Edinburgh, Ind., Grand Island, Neb.,
Louisville, Ky., Mansfield, Ohio, McDonough, Ga., Mesa, Ariz., Milton, Pa. and
Old Dominion Freight Line's McDonough, Georgia service center is one of nine of the Company's newest facilities.
“Investment in our service
center network is a hallmark of Old Dominion’s long-term strategic plan,” said
Chip Overbey, senior vice president of strategic planning. “We measure capacity
in three key areas: service centers, people and equipment. Each area is
critically important to serve our customers and accommodate the growing demand
for premium LTL services.”
Edinburgh, Ind. – The Edinburgh service center is positioned near two major highways, I-65 and Highway 31, to help support shippers in southern Indiana. This facility operates on 20.1 acres, with 63 doors and room to expand to a total of 120 doors in the future. Old Dominion hired 15 new employees to help serve Edinburgh.
Grand Island, Neb. – Newly
constructed and easily accessible to I-80, the Grand Island service center is a
34-door facility that sits on 9.3 acres. With room for future growth of up to 40
doors, this facility will improve operational efficiencies for the
agriculturally-rich central Nebraska region. Two new employees were hired
following the move.
Mansfield, Ohio – The Mansfield service center sits on 20 acres of land owned by Old Dominion. Sharing a fence line with the Ohio Air National Guard Base, the 62-door facility is strategically located in the middle of several industry- and manufacturing-rich communities. With only 10 of the 20 acres developed and room for 38 additional doors, this service center has room for future growth.
McDonough, Ga. – The
McDonough location is Old Dominion’s sixth service center in the Atlanta metro
area, and the 27th in the Southern Region. Located in the McDonough Industrial
Park, the 75-door service center sits in a prime location by I-75, Atlanta’s
major interstate, near major retail distribution centers and industrial
Milton, Pa. –The Milton location is a 22-door facility with the capacity to expand by an additional 20 doors. Located at the intersection of Route 80 West/East and 11/15 North/South, the service center moves freight such as food, warehouse inventory, and healthcare-related products. With the addition of this facility, Old Dominion is reducing response times by nearly two hours, drastically increasing the service center’s accessibility to shippers in northcentral Pennsylvania throughout the day.
Olympia, Wash. – Relocated from a 20-door facility, the Olympia service center now has 55 doors, allowing Old Dominion to increase capacity and ability to add 92 doors in the future. The service center sits on nearly 16 acres and is located a quarter-mile from I-5. Seven new employees were hired to support the Olympia service center.
