Old Dominion Relocates Wytheville, Virginia, Service Center

By: | at 02:22 PM | Channel(s): Intermodal  

Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. today relocated its Wytheville Service Center to a larger facility, reflecting the company’s continued national expansion.

With 12 employees, the facility provides a wide range of LTL and logistics services, including pickup and delivery to a tri-state area (Virginia, North Carolina and West Virginia). The service center also serves as an important turn-point location for Old Dominion’s linehaul operations. Located strategically at the junction of Interstates 81 and 77 in Southwest Virginia, the 14-door facility transports a variety of freight, much of which stems from the region’s strong manufacturing and mining industries.

“We’re thrilled to expand in Wythe County, an area that continues to demonstrate incredible economic potential,” said Trent Yates, manager of the Wytheville Service Center. “The additional space will increase our productivity, enable future growth in the region and ensure that we continue to provide our customers with the premium service they expect.”

Old Dominion, recently named one of the nation’s fastest growing companies by FORTUNE Magazine, continues to invest in new or existing facilities around the country. The company expects to spend $130 million on real estate purchases and expansion projects by the end of 2013.

The Wytheville facility’s service area includes Pulaski, Bluefield, Tazewell, Richlands, Marion, Galax, Dublin in Virginia; McDowell, Mercer and Wyoming Counties in West Virginia; and Sparta, N.C.

The facility is located at 830 Industry Road in Wytheville and is one of nine Old Dominion service centers in Virginia.
