Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. has added nine service centers in new and existing markets, the less-than-truckload carrier announced. The steady growth brings the count to 245 and solidifies Old Dominion’s presence across the continental United States.

The new or improved facilities are in Brooklyn, N.Y.; Edinburgh, Ind.; Grand Island, Neb.; Louisville, Ky.; Mansfield, Ohio; McDonough, Ga.; Mesa, Ariz.; Milton, Pa.; and Olympia, Wash.

Old Dominion’s investment in each market will support capacity needs, improve shipping time and enhance delivery flexibility, allowing it to better serve customers as demand continues to grow amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Thomasville, N.C.-based company.

“Investment in our service center network is a hallmark of Old Dominion’s long-term strategic plan,” Chip Overbey, senior vice president of strategic planning, said in a release. “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.”

Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. ranks No. 8 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North America. — Transport Topics
