Company president Michael Smith explains, “Our decision to expand into the domestic sector is a strategic move that we have considered for some time. It will allow us to extend our service capabilities to existing customers while growing our customer base. The domestic division will provide capacity to domestic carriers as well as dedicated fleet capacity to other customers.”
ASF Intermodal’s Domestic Operations Division will be based in Atlanta and overseen by Operations Manager Ron Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald has more than 20 years of experience working in truckload and dedicated fleet transportation. According to Smith, the company expects to add 50 owner-operators to its domestic fleet, as well as four staff members who will work out of the Atlanta terminal, within the next six months
Smith emphasized ASF Intermodal’s commitment to continued growth, stating, “As we expand into the domestic sector, we remain committed to our growth plan for intermodal as well. Our commitment to excellence in customer service and driver satisfaction remains strong, and will only grow stronger, as we begin this new phase of expansion.” Intermodal operations will continue from ASF Intermodal’s Atlanta terminal, as well as from the company’s other terminals in Mobile, AL; Houston, TX; Charleston, SC; Norfolk, VA; Memphis, TN and Savannah, GA.
