Old Dominion Freight Line announces service center network expansion

Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. announced that it is adding nine service centers in new and existing markets during the first half of 2020. The steady growth brings its total nationwide service center count to 238. The less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier’s new facilities include: Butte, Mont.; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Conroe, Texas; Jonesboro, Ark.; Lafayette, Ind.; LaGrange, Ga.; Rochester, N.Y; Rock Island, Ill.; and University Park, Ill.

“Our goal is to build capacity to win market share, while shortening response time and transit times,” said Chip Overbey, senior vice president of strategic planning at Old Dominion. “Our investments align with our long-term strategic plan of investing in our business.”

Each service center is built with future growth in mind, including room to increase door-count, potential to hire additional employees, and equipped to leverage the latest technology, Old Dominion stated in a press release.

“Our customers are having to adapt to these rapidly changing times. Our newest service centers are integral to Old Dominion Freight Line’s operations, accommodating unique customer needs and shipping higher volumes of goods. We will continue to invest in long-term solutions to help our customers keep their promises,” Overbey said.
