Baltimore—Aug. 8, 2011—Old Dominion Freight Line opened 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 strategic location, which complements Old Dominion’s services in its existing Baltimore Service Center, 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.
Old Dominion container drayage services include direct point-to-point delivery, loading, unloading, short term warehousing and container pools for the convenience of import and export shippers.
“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.
Old Dominion has been operating container drayage for more than 50 years and offers direct services from 12 cities in addition to Baltimore: Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Memphis, Tenn.; Mobile, Ala.; Norfolk, Va., Wilmington, N.C., Charlotte, N.C., Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga., Huntsville, Ala. and Jacksonville, Fla.
In 2010, Old Dominion container drayage grew by 35 percent, and the company continues to see strong growth in 2011. The company opened the Memphis and Mobile container drayage facilities during the second quarter. Old Dominion expects to open additional container drayage locations in the near future.
