Southeastern Freight Lines, a regional less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier, has opened a second service center in Charlotte, N.C. The move is in response to growing business in the region, the company said. Located on a 30-acre site, the facility has 123 doors and a full maintenance shop. The ability to route freight through two locations in heavily congested areas will help Southeastern Freight to maintain on-time delivery standards, the carrier said. It expects to see a continued rise in business in the Charlotte area, as well as at service centers in North and South Carolina, including Hickory, Columbia, Greenville and Florence. The South Charlotte Service Center has 140 employees, bringing to 340 the total number of Southeastern Freight Line staffers in Charlotte. Specializing in next-day service in the U.S. Southeast and Southwest, the carrier operates 76 service centers in 12 states and Puerto Rico.
