Logistics Service Centers Open in Gulf South and Midwest Regions

Feb. 21, 2013
MIQ Logistics and Old Dominion Freight Line open service centers to meet growing demand in these regions.

MIQ Logistics opened a new Global Service Center in the greater New Orleans, La., area to serve international freight forwarding needs in the growing Gulf South region of the United States. These needs include customs brokerage, global trade management, warehousing services, consolidation and distribution activities, and purchase order management. The customer base includes U.S. government business as well as shipbuilding, aerospace and mining industries.

“In recent years, New Orleans has been underserved by logistics providers, hampering the competitive environment for businesses that rely on this increasingly important transportation hub,” said Michael Collins, senior vice president Global Operations-MIQ Logistics.

The new MIQ Logistics center is strategically positioned mid-distance between the international airport and the Port of New Orleans. This allows personnel to support both ocean and air forwarding needs. It is located in the Lakeway Business Center at 3900 North Causeway Boulevard in New Orleans, La.

Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. opened a new service center in Tomah, Wisc., a transportation hub for the Midwestern United States. The Tomah Service Center is positioned at the intersection of several major thoroughfares, including Interstate 90 and Interstate 94. Tomah is also situated along U.S. Highways 12 and 16 and Wisconsin State Highways 21, 131 and 173.

The newly constructed, 78-door terminal is located at 1131 East Clifton Street in Tomah. The facility employs 20 people.

“The terminal’s large size will prepare Old Dominion to efficiently handle the huge volume of freight moving through Tomah on a daily basis,” said Michael Jeske, the service center’s manager.

The terminal’s service area includes seven cities in Wisconsin (La Crosse, Sparta, Black River Falls, Mauston, Baraboo, Onalaska and Reedsburg) and two cities in Minnesota (Rochester and Winona).
