Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, is celebrating 35 years of quality without question service from its Columbus, Georgia, service center this month.

The Columbus service center opened for business on November 16, 1982, with 16 dock doors. Throughout the more than three decades of service, the Columbus location has relocated due to continued growth and expansion of service offerings in Georgia. It is now located at 3200 Williams Road in Columbus, Georgia, with 32 dock doors and 42 associates.

“We’re thrilled to be celebrating 35 years with our associates and customers in Columbus,” said Derrick Battle, service center manager, Southeastern Freight Lines. “It’s incredibly satisfying to see the company grow and provide opportunities for so many people.”

The Columbus service center was the 14th service center opened by Southeastern Freight Lines since its founding in 1950. The company now operates 89 service centers spanning 14 states, Canada and Puerto Rico and has undergone numerous upgrades in trucks and trucking technologies.
