Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. grows its service center network with six new and expanded facilities. The company introduced new service centers in Benicia, California; Phoenixville, Pennsylvania; and Kenosha, Wisconsin. They also relocated and/or expanded three more facilities in Colorado Springs, Colorado; Milford, Connecticut; and Warren, Ohio.
Old Dominion opened the 20-door Benicia facility to expand coverage between its San Francisco and Sacramento service centers, serving customers in Napa, Sonoma, and the surrounding area and eliminating three major daily bridge crossings for trucks coming from the San Francisco area. The 55-door Phoenixville facility opened in response to growing freight volume across Pennsylvania. The service center covers an area between its Philadelphia facility and other OD service centers in the middle of the state, simplifying a region that was previously serviced out of four different centers across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Old Dominion opened the 103-door Kenosha facility to bring operations closer to its growing number of distribution, manufacturing, packing and pharmaceutical companies.
“Our record-breaking first and second quarters demonstrate that freight demand is at unprecedented levels. We expect the growth to continue as the economy rebounds, so it’s important we continue to invest in capacity,” said Chip Overbey, senior vice president of strategic development at Old Dominion Freight Line. “With our six new and upgraded facilities, we’re targeting some of the fastest-growing regions in the U.S. to ensure shippers in these areas have access to the superior transportation service they need to meet their own customer demand.”
