Old Dominion Freight Line has opened a larger service center in Portland, OR. The new 137-door facility is near two ports and major thoroughfares, the carrier said.
“The expanded service center ensures we have the room to grow and shows our commitment to the area,” said Jeff Lorenzini, manager of Old Dominion’s Portland service center. “We will continue to offer the premium service our customers have come to expect.”
The state-of-the-art facility features LED lighting through the center, a two-story office, an on-site truck scale and fuel and maintenance facilities. This site is located alongside the Historic Portland Meadows racetrack established in 1945.
Because the site is located in the Columbia Slough Watershed, Old Dominion said it worked with the Portland Bureau of Environmental Services to develop a customized storm drain to protect this sensitive area. As part of the system, vegetated storm water facilities were installed, and the site accomplishes a 90% treatment goal by directing to basins where it infiltrates through select vegetation and systems installed specifically to remove pollutants.
The center serves a number of cities in the area, including Beaverton, Hillsboro, Tillamook, Tigard, Tualatin, Wilsonville, McMinnville, Woodburn, Salem, Clackamas, Gresham, Sandy, Hood River, The Dalles, Vancouver, Washougal Woodland and Longview.
