Less-than-truckload carrier Southeastern Freight Lines has opened a relocated service center in Austin, Texas.
The new Austin service center for the No. 44 carrier on the FleetOwner 500 for-hire list is located at 10001 East U.S. Highway 290 and consists of 120 dock doors and 57 associates as well as a fuel island for drivers.
“It’s incredible to see how our Austin operation has evolved over the last 20 years. We’re excited about the opportunity the new facility provides us to serve our customers at a higher level, but also the advantage it gives us to effectively navigate the rapid growth in Austin,” said Coley Campbell, senior VP of operations at Southeastern Freight Lines. “I look forward to supporting our great team of Austin associates while they continue to meet our customers’ needs in this next chapter.”
Previously located at 1916 Waukesha Drive, the Austin service center opened for business in May 2000.
“As the Texas market continues to grow, we recognize Austin as one of the top 10 most populated cities in America. SEFL’s vision to support current and future needs led us to build a state-of-the-art facility,” said Austin Winters, regional VP of operations for the carrier. “By adding dock doors and owning the acreage to expand, we have added capacity well into the future. We feel the new location is even better situated to provide outstanding service to our customers.”
