Bottomley Enterprises, a family-owned carrier, recently opened a new trucking terminal in Mount Airy, North Carolina.
The company’s new estimated $13 million, 33,000 square-foot terminal will create approximately 100 new jobs, according to the Mt. Airy News.
Bottomley’s team drivers haul expedited refrigerated freight, including meat, produce and Christmas trees, to several western locations in the U.S., from its Bottomley Evergreens and Farms operation.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration data, Bottomley Enterprises has 57 power units and 120 drivers.
The company decided to move its headquarters from Ennice, North Carolina, in January 2019 after receiving approval from the Surry County Board of Commissioners, the news outlet reported.
