Southeastern Freight Lines announced that it has expanded direct service to the entire state of Alabama. Previously, Southeastern used a partner carrier to deliver freight to a few small cities and towns near the Mississippi state line, but Southeastern says it now is delivering to those areas directly with next-day service, in most cases, to all destinations within the state. Nine service centers, five of which are located in Alabama, serve the state.
“Serving is the lifeblood of our organization, and if there’s a way we can better serve our customers, we make it happen,” says Richard Bogan, regional vice president of operations for Lexington, S.C.-based Southeastern. “At a time when other carriers are cutting back service to save costs, we are investing to provide even better service to customers to be the premier carrier in the state of Alabama and throughout the Southeast. By simplifying the routing needs for our customers to deliver freight to the entire state of Alabama, we’re removing obstacles for our customers.”
