Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, is celebrating 65 years of quality without question service at its Florence, South Carolina, service center.
Located at 1421 W. Darlington Street in Florence, South Carolina, the service center opened for business in June of 1953 with a handful of dock doors and one associate. Since then, the facility has grown to 67 dock doors and 63 associates, with one employee, and owner and original manager WT Cassels Jr., also celebrating 65 years with the service center.
"From the tobacco warehouse where Mr. Cassels' son would faithfully guard the freight, to operating out of a mess hall in the Florence airport, the Florence service center's humble beginnings truly reflect the storied history of our great company," said Scott Young, service center manager, Southeastern Freight Lines. "We're excited to not only celebrate this important milestone with WT Cassels Jr. and the rest of the Florence team, but also how they've continued to exhibit a serving attitude and passion for excellence over these past 65 years. We can't wait to see how our service center continues to grow and expand in the years to come."
The Florence service center was the third 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.
