Old Dominion opens Texas service center to meet rising demands

Nov. 13, 2017
Less-than-truckload carrier opens up facility on 24 acres in Dallas-Fort Worth area with access from I-45, I-20, I-30 and I-635.

Old Dominion Freight Line opened a new Texas service center to maintain pace with what the company sees as increasing statewide and regional shipping demand.

“The Garland location positions us closer to several existing markets, enabling us to be more flexible and responsive to deliver premium service to our customers every day,” said Chuck Powell, Old Dominion’s regional vice president of the Gulf Coast region. “Even with 20 service centers across the state of Texas, we will continue to see opportunities for growth in the years ahead.”

The Thomasville, N.C.-based less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier, began operations at the new service center Oct. 1. The 102-door facility, located at 2760 Marquis Drive, Garland, TX, has been engineered to be the most efficient terminal in Old Dominion’s 228 service center network, according to Powell. “We continually upgrade our processes and technology to provide best-in-class service to our customers,” he said.

Old Dominion positioned the 24-acre site for optimal access to four major interstates surrounding the Dallas Fort Worth area: the north/south route I-45, east/west interstates I-20 and I-30, and the I-635.

“Our prime location within this prominent distribution hub will aid in our mission to flourish regionally and nationally,” he said.

The Garland facility will service a number of municipalities near Dallas including: Allen, Corsicana, Ennis, Hutchins, McKinney, Mesquite, Plano, Richardson,
Rowlett, Sachse, Seagoville, Sherman and Terrell. Old Dominion brought 35 new hires to the service center.

Alongside Garland, Old Dominion has a significant presence across Texas with service centers in Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, Beaumont, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Lubbock, Laredo, Odessa, South Houston, San Antonio, Texarkana, Tyler, Waco, and Wichita Falls
