THOMASVILLE, N.C. -- Old Dominion Freight Line has moved a pair of service centres to new larger locations: it’s Kentucky-based Paducah Service Center and its Ohio-based Toledo Service Centre.
The new Paducah centre, located near Interstate 24 at 2100 Shade Tree Drive, has been upgraded to a 20-door terminal on seven acres.
“The larger loading dock will eliminate congestion and allow us to more efficiently service our customers,” said Doyle Fox, manager of the Paducah Service Center. “This enhanced facility will help Old Dominion maintain its commitment to providing outstanding service to all its customers in the region.”
The service centre was previously located at 823 Estelle Street.
Old Dominion’s Toldeo facility has also moved to a larger, more modern location. The 48-door service centre, located near Interstate 75 at 5950 Stickney Avenue, features additional yard space and a larger dock, but will also serve as part of the company’s pledge to reduce its carbon footprint, officials said.
The Toledo Service Center is equipped with energy efficient lighting with motion sensors to lessen the total amount of energy consumed and solar powered security fencing.
“With the relocation to this expanded facility, Old Dominion is better poised for growth in northern Ohio and southeast Michigan,” said Mike Leskovec, manager of the Toledo Service Center. “This modern facility helps us keep our promise to the environment while also maintaining the commitment to our customers to provide a premium and reliable service.”
