The Cookeville location, which has moved to a 25-door facility located on a 7 1/2-acre site, will continue operations under the leadership of service center manager Bruce Carter, who will direct a staff of 17. “The relocation and expansion of the Cookeville service center will allow us to better serve our customers in the upper Cumberland region of middle Tennessee,” says Hugh Morris, vice president of the Southern region for the Thomasville, N.C.-based less-than-truckload carrier.

The Oakland location, which has moved to a 61-door facility located on an 8-acre site, will continue operations under the leadership of service center manager Dan Sisneroz, who will direct a staff of 58. “The relocation of the Oakland Service Center will allow us to be more centrally located to all of our customers on a daily basis, which will further enhance our service to the Bay Area,” says Bob Foote, vice president of Old Dominion’s Western region.

The Rockford location, which has moved to a 42-door facility located on a 6-acre site, will continue operations under the leadership of service center manager Brendan Martinez, who will direct a staff of 20. “The relocation positions Old Dominion to expand its service area and gain market share in points currently being served,” says Mike Wood, vice president of Old Dominion’s Midwest region.

The Chico location, which has moved to a 12-door facility located on a 2-acre site, will continue operations under the leadership of service center manager Mike Souders, who will direct a staff of 17. “The relocation of the Chico service center will allow us to retain our equipment in a central location, which operationally will help us better serve our customers,” Foote says. “This location will also provide us room for growth.”

The Topeka location, which has moved to a 34-door facility located on a 7-acre site, will continue operations under the leadership of service center manager Joe Campos, who will direct a staff of 12. “The relocation of the Topeka service center will allow our dock operations to operate more efficiently, which will result in improved service and reduced costs,” says Dave Bates, vice president of the Central States region.

The Cheyenne location, a three-door facility, will begin operations under the leadership of service center manager Brian Buckley, who will direct a staff of four. “The opening of the Cheyenne service center will add service coverage to our two other locations in Wyoming,” says Chuck Powell, vice president of the Pacific Northwest region.
