Montgomery, Ill. (Sep. 20, 2017) — Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. introduced its eighth service center in Illinois, part of the company's strategy to expand its ability to deliver efficient, premium service across the Midwest.
"With the growth we have seen west of the Chicago market, Montgomery will better serve our footprint in the area," said Darek Nowak, Old Dominion's regional vice president of the Midwest states. "The eighteen acre site provides room for continued growth"
The Thomasville, N.C.-based less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier, began operations at the new service center in July. The 103-door facility is located at 2150 Aucutt Rd, Montgomery, IL 60538. Old Dominion selected the site for its proximity to key east/west interstates, I-88 and I-90, north/south routes I-55 and I-39, as well as I-355, known as Veterans Memorial Tollway, which helps access western and southwestern suburbs of Chicago.
The company added ten new hires, bringing its total workforce to 117 drivers, dock workers, customer service professionals, managers and logistics experts at the Montgomery service center.
The new facility will service Montgomery, Aurora, Naperville, Oswego, Batavia, West Chicago, Geneva, Elgin, Carol Stream, Bartlett, Hanover Park, Glendale Heights, Saint Charles, Sugar Grove and Elburn.
Alongside Montgomery, Old Dominion has service centers throughout the state, including Chicago, Des Plaines, Crest Hill, Rockford, LaSalle, Decatur and Rock Island.
