MORRISTOWN, Tenn. — Old Dominion Freight Line officially re-opened its expansion and enhancement at its Morristown Service Center, capping well over a year project.

Old Dominion’s Morristown Service Center is one of the largest in the company’s network of 219 terminals.

The company invested millions to expand the facility to 347 doors and hired dozens of new employees in recent months to handle the increased freight moving through the facility, said President and CEO David Congdon.

“Morristown is very important to Old Dominion, and this new state-of-the-art terminal will ensure our customers continue to receive our premium service they expect from Old Dominion,” Congdon said. “As we pause to celebrate our continued growth in the region and throughout the country, it is important that we recognize the entire Old Dominion family. This expansion is possible because of their commitment to providing a premium and reliable service for our customers.”

In addition to Congdon, speakers at the event included U.S. Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., and Iliff McMahan with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.

The event also featured Old Dominion’s rolling museum, a custom built trailer that houses interactive displays, historical artifacts and other items demonstrating the company’s many features and offerings for customers.

The museum provides an inside look into the Old Dominion’s 78-year legacy, which started with a single truck, is today one of the largest less-than-truckload motor carriers in the United States, employing more than 14,500 people nationally.

The Morristown completion was the second such milestone in as many weeks for Old Dominion. Last week, the company celebrated the completion of an expansion to its service center in Indianapolis.
