ODFL Expands Warehousing Business

Old Dominion Freight Line is reaching deeper into shipper supply chains by expanding its warehousing division. The less-than-truckload carrier today opened a 160,000-square-foot warehouse, headquarters and free trade zone for its distribution business.

The warehouse is about five miles from ODFL's headquarters in Thomasville, N.C. "This new facility will enable our clients to better serve the Southeast, Northeast and Midwest markets," said Rick Keeler, senior vice president of pricing and strategic development.

ODFL launched its OD-Warehousing and Distribution Services Division in 2008, offering fulfillment, consolidation and deconsolidation, cross docking and other services from facilities in Commerce, Calif., and Worcester, Mass., in addition to Thomasville.
