U.S. Xpress Enterprises, a provider of transportation services throughout North America, has opened a full-service terminal facility in Shippensburg, Pa. The property is situated on over 50 acres and spans nearly 70,000 square feet.
Features of the full-service facility include: drivers’ lounge with shower facilities and Internet access, convenience store, fuel islands, maintenance shop, parking for trailers and driver vehicles, administrative office space, orientation/training rooms, and 37,600 sq. ft. of warehouse space.
“Expanding into the Northeast with a major hub is a strategic move that we have been looking forward to taking for some time now as our customer base and volumes have grown in the region,” says Max Fuller, co-chairman and CEO.
The new location for U.S. Xpress brings several jobs to the area, including 50 immediate full-time employees and up to 50 additional positions in the near future for maintenance and office personnel.
U.S. Xpress purchased the facility, which is located off Interstate 81, from Cressler Trucking Inc. A complete energy-efficient lighting upgrade has been made throughout the facility, with plans for more sustainable initiatives, like materials recycling, in the near future.
