Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. announced the opening of a new container drayage site to serve all ports and container yards in the Baltimore area. The new site—the third new container drayage facility Old Dominion has opened this year—will offer pick-up and delivery to any point in the continental United States. The location will allow the company to access key manufacturing areas in the Midwest and to reach approximately one-third of the U.S. population in an overnight drive.
“The Baltimore site responds to growing customer demand and expands our coverage on the East Coast in close proximity to traditional drayage markets served by Old Dominion,” said Wayne Bersch, Director of Container Operations for Old Dominion.
In 2010, Old Dominion container drayage grew by 35 percent, and the company continues to see strong growth in 2011. The company opened Memphis and Mobile container drayage facilities during the second quarter. Old Dominion expects to open additional container drayage locations in the near future, the company’s official announcement stated.
