FedEx Freight, a provider of regional and interregional less-than-truckload services in the United States, has opened four new service centers and expanded a fifth facility as part of a 'long-term growth strategy focusing on next-day and second-day regional markets,' according to Douglas G.

The company's new facilities are in Des Plaines, Ill.; Salem, Ore.; Texarkana, Ark., and Springfield, Mass. In Des Plaines, FedEx's 44,000-square-foot service center has 76 doors.

In addition, FedEx Freight has added a supplemental building at the company's service center in West Babylon, N.Y., on Long Island. The expansion brings that facility to 17,000 square feet with 60 doors to handle freight.
