Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, is celebrating 40 years of quality without question service from its Augusta, South Carolina, service center this March.
Located at 1040 Edgefield Road, the Augusta service center originally opened for business in March of 1976 and currently features 50 dock doors and employs 57 associates.
Two original team members are also celebrating anniversaries at the service center this month. Steve Weeks, pick-up and delivery supervisor, and Angela Hollar, customer service representative, have both been with the Augusta service center since its opening in 1976 and are celebrating 40 years with the company.
"Four decades ago, the Augusta service center opened its doors and brought a new culture of trucking to the region," said Keith McDonald, service center manager, Southeastern Freight Lines. "Since opening, the Augusta service center has experienced tremendous growth, increasing from its original eight employees and 16 dock doors, which is a testament to the commitment of our team to provide quality without question service to our customers."
The Augusta service center was the 8th service center opened by Southeastern Freight Lines since its founding in 1950. Since then, the company operates 88 service centers spanning 14 states, Canada and Puerto Rico and has undergone numerous upgrades in trucks and trucking technologies.
