Old Dominion starts drayage in Baltimore
Old Dominion Freight Line has opened a 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 pickup and delivery to any point in the continental United States. The 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 about one-third of the U.S. population in an overnight drive.
Old Dominion's 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 company 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 and 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 expects to open additional container drayage locations in the near future.
