LEXINGTON, S.C. (Oct. 18, 2012) - Southeastern Freight Lines, a leader in regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, announces the opening of a service center in Fort Worth, TX in response to growing business in the region and to improve service to current customers.
The new facility, located at 5300 Martin St. in Fort Worth, features 15,000 square feet of office space, a 10,000 square foot appointment warehouse and 125 doors.

Southeastern has seen double digit shipment growth each year for nearly a decade in this region. As the business continues to grow, this new service center will help Southeastern streamline efficiencies for customer shipments in the Fort Worth area.
"At Southeastern, we are proud of our 99 percent on time delivery and this service center allows us to continue rapid growth without compromising customer service to our valued Fort Worth customers," said David Turner, regional vice president of operations for Southeastern.
The Fort Worth Service Center will employ over 100 individuals, including 10 new hires from the Fort Worth community.
