Heartland Express has announced the purchase of a terminal location in Dallas. The company says the location not only will strengthen its presence in the Southwest but also will complement its recent expansion to the western United States.
The office and shop facility situated on about seven acres of land is located on the southeast side of Dallas on Highway 175 in Seagoville. An adjacent five-acre tract of land was acquired for future expansion. Property renovations are expected to begin immediately, with operations scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of this year.
“We are excited to be further expanding our service into the Southwestern markets,” says Michael Gerdin, president of North Liberty, Iowa-based Heartland Express. “This region has been on our growth horizons for some time. Regional operations have been a stronghold and growing footprint for Heartland Express for many years. We are excited to offer this new regional service to both our drivers and our customers.”
The Dallas terminal will be Heartland Express’ 10th regional operating center. The company also has regional operating centers in Atlanta; Carlisle, Pa.; Chester, Va.; Columbus, Ohio; Jacksonville, Fla.; Kingsport, Tenn.; North Liberty, Iowa; Olive Branch, Miss.; and Phoenix.
