Old Dominion Freight Line recently announced two service center relocations: in Florence, S.C., and Waynesboro, Va.
The 24-door Florence service center, located on a five-acre site, will continue operations under the leadership of service center manager Todd Brantley, who will direct a staff of 28. “The relocation of the Florence service center will more than double its size, making it more efficient to service our customers with the quality service for which we are known,” says LB Clayton, vice president of the Mid-South region for the less-than-truckload carrier, based in Thomasville, N.C. “Old Dominion will be positioned to gain market share in points currently being served.”
The newly constructed, expanded 30-door Waynesboro facility is located on a seven-acre site in Fishersville, less than a mile off of Interstate 64, and will continue operations under the leadership of service center manager Spencer Sykes, who will direct a staff of 22. “With this relocation, we now have a more central location in our service area with easy access to I-81 and I-64,” Clayton says. “This will make our arrival times of inbound loads earlier than we get them now, allowing us to process the freight earlier and get our deliveries to the customers earlier in the day. Also, with the increase in dock doors and a larger platform dock, we will be much more efficient in our dock operations.”
