A freight company has nearly doubled its capacity after moving to a new facility located strategically near the Thruway and Interstate 87.
Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. recently relocated its service center from Albany to a 40,000-square-foot facility at the Glenville Business and Technology Park, allowing the company to add 33 new bays for its trucks.
The recently constructed $8.35 million hub contains 72 doors — 45 percent more than the old facility contained.
Old Dominion employs 50 workers and has maintained a presence in the Capital Region since 1998.
The service center provides direct service throughout upstate New York, including Albany, Kingston, Schenectady, Clifton Park, Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls, Gloversville and Johnstown.
“We look forward to upholding Old Dominion’s promise to deliver premium service to all its customers from our new and improved facility,” Mike McGinness, the service center’s manager, said in a news release.
Founded in 1934 in Richmond, Va., Old Dominion is headquartered in North Carolina.
It has annual sales of more than $2 billion and nearly 13,000 employees who move cargo, manage truck logistics and make deliveries across the country and abroad.
Last year alone, the company opened new service centers in California, Iowa, Wisconsin and Arizona, and expanded centers in Pennsylvania, Wyoming, Ohio, Montana, Nevada and Kentucky.
