TOLEDO, Ohio – Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. Feb. 1 moved its Toledo, Ohio, Service Center to a larger, more modern location and its Paducah, Ky., Service Center to a larger facility to improve service to customers in Kentucky, Missouri and Illinois.  

 The 48-door Toledo service center features additional yard space and a larger dock to better accommodate Old Dominion’s steady growth in business in northern Ohio and southeastern Michigan.

The new location is also part of Old Dominion's pledge to reduce its carbon footprint. The Toledo Service Center is equipped with energy efficient lighting with motion sensors to lessen the total amount of energy consumed and solar-powered security fencing.

“With the relocation to this expanded facility, Old Dominion is better poised for growth in northern Ohio and southeast Michigan,” said Mike Leskovec, the manager of the Toledo Service Center. “This modern facility helps us keep our promise to the environment while also maintaining the commitment to our customers to provide a premium and reliable service.”

Old Dominion has maintained a presence in Toledo for 19 years and currently employs more than 30 people. The service center is strategically located near Interstate 75 at 5950 Stickney Avenue.

The terminal’s service area includes 11 cities in Ohio (Sandusky, Toledo, Port Clinton, Huron, Perrysburg, Holland, Swanton, Bryan, Wauseon, Findlay and Carey) and six cities in Michigan (Tecumseh, Manchester, Monroe, Woodville, Jonesville and Adrian).

The upgraded 20-door Paducah terminal, located at 2100 Shade Tree Drive, will allow Old Dominion to more efficiently manage the sustained growth in freight traffic in the Interstate 24 corridor.

“The larger loading dock will eliminate congestion and allow us to more efficiently service our customers,” said Doyle Fox, the manager of the Paducah Service Center. “This enhanced facility will help Old Dominion maintain its commitment to providing outstanding service to all its customers in the region.”

For nine years, Old Dominion has maintained a presence in Paducah. With 20 employees, the seven-acre service center is strategically located in close proximity to Interstate 24.

The terminal’s coverage area includes four Kentucky cities (Paducah, Murray, Calvert City and Mayfield), two Missouri cities (Sikeston and Cape Girardeau) and two cities in Illinois (Marion and Benton).

The service center was previously located at 823 Estelle Street.
