Old Dominion Cuts the Ribbon on 8th Illinois Location

Old Dominion Freight Line

Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. officially cut the ribbon on its eighth service center in Illinois on Sept. 21, occupied with 117 employees and 103 doors at the cross dock.

The newest location on Aucutt Road in Montgomery is near interstates 39, 55, 88, 90 and 355, providing access that will strengthen OD’s delivery time and reach.

“With the growth we have seen west of the Chicago market, Montgomery will better serve our footprint in the area,” said Darek Nowak, Old Dominion’s regional vice president of the Midwest states. “The 18-acre site provides room for continued growth.”

The Thomasville, N.C.-based less-than-truckload carrier began operations at the service center in July, but the ribbon-cutting didn’t take place until September.

The new facility will service the Illinois towns of Montgomery, Aurora, Naperville, Oswego, Batavia, West Chicago, Geneva, Elgin, Carol Stream, Bartlett, Hanover Park, Glendale Heights, Saint Charles, Sugar Grove and Elburn.

Old Dominion ranks No. 11 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers in North America.
