LEXINGTON, S.C. (January 31, 2017) - Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, is celebrating 30 years of quality without question service from its Jacksonville, Florida, service center this month.
Located at 3335 Edgewood Avenue North, the Jacksonville service center opened for business in January of 1987 with 24 dock doors and 10 associates. Since then, the facility has grown to 133 total doors and 170 employees.
The facility is also celebrating the anniversaries of seven original team members: Pickup and Delivery Drivers Bill Wolff, Steve Mccorkel and Paul Mckinley; Linehaul Drivers James Lewis, Mike Baker and Harold Inman, and Over, Short and Damaged Clerical Cindy Pridgen. All have been with Southeastern since the service center opening in 1987 and are celebrating more than 30 years with the company.
"As we celebrate this milestone in Jacksonville, it's incredible to reflect on not only the impact we've had on our customers, but to realize our location has seven of the original ten employees we started with," said Russ Brien, service center manager, Southeastern Freight Lines. "With our tight-knit work family, we look forward to continually growing our shipments and success year-after-year."
The Jacksonville service center was the 21st service center opened by Southeastern Freight Lines since its founding in 1950. Since then, the company operates 89 service centers spanning 14 states, Canada and Puerto Rico and has undergone numerous upgrades in trucks and trucking technologies.
