Less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. has expanded its service center network, opening a handful or new and remodeled facilities across the country in the second half of 2019, the company said this week.

North Carolina-based Old Dominion said it is investing in service center upgrades to accommodate growing capacity needs and customer demand in specific markets. The carrier has opened new facilities in Central Point, Ore.; Blackfoot, Idaho; Cartersville, Ga.; and Little Rock, Ark., and re-opened expanded facilities in El Paso and Lubbock, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and Chicago. Facility expansion includes adding doors, upgrading technology, and hiring additional staff, the company said.

"Our long-term strategic plan includes continual investment in our network to improve efficiencies and increase capacity so when our customers grow, we can serve them," Old Dominion's Terry Hutchins, vice president of real estate, said in a statement announcing the openings. "The end goal of helping our customers keep their promises is solidified by our continued investment in new technology and service center expansion."
