Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, is celebrating 20 years of quality without question service at its West Atlanta service center.
Located at 750 Aquila Way in Austell, Georgia, the service center opened for business on October 5, 1998, with 123 dock doors. Since then, the facility has grown to 181 dock doors and 413 associates, 52 of which are also celebrating 20 years with the service center.
These 52 original associates include 17 pickup and delivery drivers, 11 fleet services, 10 linehaul drivers, seven freight handlers, two administrative, two pickup and delivery dispatchers, one safety specialist, one inbound dock supervisor and one office manager, all of which have been at the Austell service center since its opening in 1998 and remain active with Southeastern today.
"At Southeastern, we deeply value each associate and know that, as a team, we are the keys to achieving quality without question," said Jason Hood, service center manager, Southeastern Freight Lines. "It's truly amazing to see how these 52 original associates have exhibited a serving attitude and passion for excellence for 20 years and are continuing to do so daily. We're thrilled to celebrate this important milestone with the West Atlanta team and look forward to watching our facility continue to expand and exceed the needs of our customers in the coming years."
The West Atlanta service center was the 50th service center opened by Southeastern Freight Lines since its founding in 1950. The company now operates 89 service centers spanning 13 states, Canada and Puerto Rico, and has undergone numerous upgrades in trucks and trucking technologies.
