Southeastern Freight Lines’ Huntsville Service Center Celebrates 25 Years of Service

Four original employees celebrate 25 years with company

LEXINGTON, S.C. (Feb. 24, 2016) Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, is celebrating 25 years of quality without question service from its Huntsville, Alabama, service center this February.

The Huntsville service center, located at 6630 Swancott Road, originally opened for business in February of 1991, and currently features 37 dock doors and employs 42 associates.

The service center is also celebrating the anniversaries of four original team members, Linehaul Drivers William Byrd, Blake Coleman and Lonnie Toney, as well as Pick-up and Delivery Driver Randy Campbell. All four employees have been with the Huntsville service center since its opening in 1991 and are celebrating 25 years with the company.

“When Southeastern’s Huntsville service center first opened its doors in 1991, it introduced a new culture of trucking in Alabama that has lasted a quarter-century,” said Austin Winters, service center manager, Southeastern Freight Lines. “Our professional group of associates, state of the art equipment and quality without question service model has allowed our service center to experience significant growth over the years while building lasting, loyal relationships with our customers.”

To assist its services in Canada, Southeastern will support deliveries from its gateway service center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Huntsville service center was the 28th service center opened by Southeastern Freight Lines since its founding in 1950. Since then, the company operates 88 service centers spanning 14 states, Canada and Puerto Rico and has undergone numerous upgrades in trucks and trucking technologies.
