Old Dominion expands US network


Old Dominion Freight Line announced that it has opened a new LTL freight hub in Portland and completed a renovation of its Chattanooga Service Center in the US.

The Portland hub represents a significant expansion for Old Dominion, increasing capacity to 136 dock doors from 84 doors at the previous location. The facility employs 147 people, including drivers, sales representatives, dock workers, mechanics and administrative employees.

The Portland location handles a range of freight, stemming from its close proximity to Interstate 5, the Port of Portland and several major rail heads. “The new facility in Portland is a significant investment for Old Dominion,” said Jeff Lorenzini, manager of the Portland Service Center. “With additional room for growth, the new facility will help solidify Old Dominion as the leading premium service carrier in the region.”

The Chattanooga Service Center is expected to help the company to enhance its LTL services in East Tennessee. The overhauled facility includes a 40% expansion to the loading dock and a renovated office for administrative employees. The company employs 92 people in Chattanooga, including drivers, sales representatives, dock workers, mechanics and administrative employees.
