Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. (Nasdaq: ODFL) expands 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 Olympia, Wash.

 

The nine new and renovated service centers are strategically placed for operational efficiency aligned with the Company’s long-term strategic plan. Old Dominion’s investment in

each market will support capacity needs, improve shipping time, and enhance delivery flexibility,

allowing the Company to better serve customers as demand continues to grow amid the COVID19 pandemic.

 

“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.”

 

Each service center is constructed with best-in-class facilities to improve operational

efficiencies. Old Dominion’s recent investments in innovative technology, such as tools for realtime track and traceability, allows the Company to adapt to meet evolving customer needs while maintaining its premium service.

 

“Shippers can expect to see improved transit times, faster response times, and adequate

capacity to meet their transportation needs,” said Overbey. “In each of these nine markets, our

team worked together with the common goal of wanting to serve our customer and community

better.”
