Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. announced the opening of a new container drayage site to serve all ports and container yards around Mobile, Ala. The new site – the second new container drayage facility Old Dominion has opened this year – will offer pickup and delivery to any point in the continental United States. Old Dominion container drayage services include direct point-to-point delivery, loading, unloading, short-term warehousing and container pools for import and export shippers.
“The Mobile site responds to growing customer demand and expands our coverage throughout the South in close proximity to traditional drayage markets served by Old Dominion,” says Wayne Bersch, director of container operations for Old Dominion. “This new site allows us to continue to hire new drivers and also use Southeastern-based drivers to serve market needs.”
Old Dominion offers direct services from 11 cities in addition to Mobile: Atlanta; Chicago; Los Angeles; Memphis, Tenn.; Norfolk, Va.; Wilmington, N.C.; Charlotte, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Savannah, Ga.; Huntsville, Ala.; and Jacksonville, Fla. The company opened the Memphis container drayage facility last month and is planning future openings.
